5 Star Seeds - The Lembke Family

5 Star Seeds – The Lembke Family

In 2006, after much soul-searching, Steven and Karen decided to switch their farming efforts from dairy to organic grain production. They bought their original grain handling and storage equipment from Organic Meadow and moved it to their farm in Western Ontario.

Today Steven, Karen and their family devote their time to growing, storing and supplying nutritious organic grains for other Organic Meadow farmers. They have 11 storage bins, a dryer bin, and a scale that can weigh trainloads of grain and a new seed plant in operation. Future plans include a warehouse, blending equipment and more storage as needed.

“We are proud to be working with Organic Meadow Co-operative and its members,” says Steven, “and we’re looking forward to providing our fellow farmers with a more complete service in the near future.”
