Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Odilia Osthaus always wanted to be a farmer. Growing up in Sreiburd, Germany, it was an unusual ambition for a woman. But it wasn’t unusual to choose organic farming. So when Odilia found a 200 acre farm near Durham, Ontario 20 years ago, going organic was the obvious choice.
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.
