Our Organic Farmers
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.
“What we love most about organic farming is seeing our livestock grazing and roaming free,” says Cyril Schneider of his 35 milking cows. Cyril, his wife Myriam and their three children arrived in Canada from Europe in 1999 looking for a farm with “nice green pastures”. They found it near a small village in Eastern Ontario.
