WTVO/WQRF - Organic farmers in Illinois get help from the state.

They will be reimbursed for part of the cost of their federal certification. The Illinois Department of Agriculture says the state covers 75% of the cost, up to $750.

Recent federal statistics show sales from organic farms across Illinois have more than tripled within just five years.
