Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service, Inc. (MOSES)

The Midwest Organic & Sustainable Education Service (MOSES,) is a 501(c)3 education-outreach organization working to promote sustainable and organic agriculture. MOSES serves farmers striving to produce high-quality, healthful food using organic & sustainable techniques. These farmers produce more than just food: they support thriving ecosystems and vibrant rural communities.

MOSES is best known for organizing the largest organic farming conference (OFC) in the country, held annually in La Crosse, Wisconsin. From its humble beginning with 90 attendees over twenty years ago, the Conference now attracts over 2,600 people. The 21st Annual OFC will be held February 26-27, 2010 at the La Crosse Center in La Crosse, WI.

The Organic University, which will precede the conference on Thursday, February 25, 2010 consists of ten in-depth, full-day courses that provide detailed information critical to the successful production and marketing of organic crops and livestock.

The MOSES Online Book Store provides important reference materials to farmers, and helps support our efforts to provide education and information to farmers, students, educators, and extension agents.

The Organic Broadcaster is a bimonthly newspaper published by the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Services (MOSES) that highlights news, information and innovations about Organic Agriculture. A quality publication with the kind of in-depth information farmers need to understand the complexities of organic production.

The Upper Midwest Organic Resource Directory is a resource for farmers, extension agents, students and others in the Midwest who seek information about certification agencies, state and government agencies, farmer co-ops, networks, suppliers, processors, buyers and much more. The directory is available through the MOSES office or online on the MOSES website.

MOSES provides organic agriculture training to farmers and Agricultural Professionals in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. For more information, visit our events calendar.

MOSES also awards the annual MOSES Farmer of the Year Award, provides informational Fact Sheets, resource referral, and the Organic Tree Fruit Network.
