Wisconsin a big player in organic farming

Surprising article in the Cap Times, but no matter what your opinion of organic versus non-organic farms, you've got to be happy that organic farmers are having some success. Organic farms in Wisconsin are making as much money as their non-organic counterparts. And overhead costs are slightly lower for the organic farms. I would have expected the opposite.

See Bill Novak's article here.
