Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
The Biemonds immigrated to Canada from Holland in 1981 with their four children and bought a dairy farm near Iroquois, Ontario. At first they farmed conventionally, but the costs involved and their health concerns about using chemicals forced Pieter and Maria to look at alternative methods. In 1989, the Biemonds quit conventional farming and began farming organically.
New visitors to Ted and Mary Lou Minten’s farm are often shown a large family portrait and introduced to their 10 children. Family is paramount for the Mintens, and they appreciate the help they get from their children as they are able.
