Cuba City, WI – It's an organic "field day" for Wisconsin farmers. The Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service is inviting those interested in making the switch to organic production to visit Keith Wilson's Cuba City farm tomorrow.

Wilson says when he first started farming and planting corn he never thought much about using chemicals as part of the process, but he soon felt the impact.

"When I would plant corn, we used insecticides sometimes, and I would be sick for two or three weeks, really not feeling good. I think it was probably from the chemicals that were on that corn."

But for the last 10 years, Wilson's integrated dairy and row crop operation has been organic. He doesn't feel the impact of chemicals now. He appreciates doing his part for environmental protection, and he likes the higher prices paid for his organic diary products.

"We get a lot more return off an acre of ground now than we used to because we get higher prices for our grain and for our milk."

Information about organic farming is available at www.mosesorganic.org, or by calling (715)772-3153.
