USAgNet - 07/14/2017

The Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service is seeking nominations for the 2018 Organic Farmer of the Year award, which will be presented at the 29th annual MOSES Organic Farming Conference in La Crosse next winter.

Every year, MOSES recognizes an outstanding organic farmer or farm family who are innovators; who excel in managing their farm resources like soil, water, wildlife, and biodiversity; and who serve as educators and shining examples in their communities and to the next generation of organic farmers.

Candidates must show a commitment to helping others learn about organic agriculture, and have current organic certification in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota or Wisconsin.

The Organic Farmer of the Year award includes a cash gift, full registration to the Organic Farming Conference, lodging at the conference, and a gift certificate redeemable at the conference book sales booth.

Those who wish to nominate a farmer for the award must complete and return the nomination form, which is available by calling the MOSES office at 715-778-5775.

Nominations are due September 15.
