The entrepreneurial culture of farmers’ organizations of Magsasaka at Siyentipiko Para sa Pag- unlad ng Agrikultura (MASIPAG) in the Philippines is a contribution to Organic 3.0. The mechanisms necessary to reinforce an entrepreneurial culture for the Organic farmers’ organizations of MASIPAG are described. Different PGS groups have similar entrepreneurial capabilities yet dissimilar competitive success and organizational cultural dimensions. Much work is needed to develop the entrepreneurial capabilities, we recommend that farmers actively participate in marketing activities within their localities, improve production, and take advantage of expanding markets; farmers’ organizations leaders should encourage members to increase production and entice conventional farmers to transition to Organic production; MASIPAG should act as a support institution by helping farmers design appropriate programs to reinforce good business management.
