All rights reserved.Organic farming represents one of the most distinctive phenomena among those characterizing the evolution of the Italian primary sector over the past two decades, especially in Sicily. In recent years, the Sicilian organic sector has come to prominence for the increase in both size and number of organic farms, which has allowed our country to rank among the foremost in this category at the international scale. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how organic farming may contribute to the economic revival of Sicilian agriculture, not only from an exquisitely economic standpoint, but also in terms of sustainable development and environmental protection. The latter two prerogatives have been vigorously supported by European Union policy and are to be fully pursued within member states so as to promote economic growth.
