If you're looking for some extra funding, you might want to take a look at the USDA's Organic Initiative funding. This marks the third year of USDA's Organic Initiative, and in 2011, up to $50 million is being made available for producers. Producers can use these funds to plan and implement conservation practices, but the practices must coincide with ideals that support organic production.
The USDA offers the follow examples of how organic producers might use this funding: "To plant cover crops, establish integrated pest management plans, or implement nutrient management systems consistent with organic certification standards."
Producers certified through USDA's National Organic Program are eligible to apply. You can also apply for funds if you're currently transitioning to certified organic production or if you meet organic standards but are exempt from certification due to low (under $5,000) gross annual sales.
If you're interested in applying for Organic Initiative funding you'll need to submit an application through your local NRCS Service Center, before March 4, 2011.
If you're looking for ways to reduce energy costs on your farm, you may also want to check out, USDA's Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) funding which you can apply for now as well.
