Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
The Groenewegens milk about 30 Holstein and Jersey cows, which are fed mostly organic pasture grass for seven months of the year. During the colder months, the cows eat organic barley, corn, peas, balage, and kelp, and are turned out every day to exercise and socialize. Homeopathic remedies are used to keep the cattle healthy.
Amy Darroch began to fulfill her lifelong dream this past July on her newly purchased farm just south of Peterborough . From the time her parents began dairy farming twenty five years ago, when Amy was just a toddler, she had a passion for animals and she knew she had been bitten by the farming bug.
