LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- Nearly 3,400 farmers, researchers and others are gathering in Wisconsin to talk about organic farming.

La Crosse Tribune reports the 25th annual MOSES Organic Farming Conference began Thursday in La Crosse and goes through Saturday.

David Podoll has an organic farm near Fullerton, N.D. He says when he started farming 40 years ago, people criticized organic methods as antiquated or stupid. Podell says that attitude has changed and now even conventional farmers tell him that he's doing the right thing.

Podell is being honored at the conference as one of the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service's farmers of the year.
