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.
Lloyd and Beth own a free-range grandfathered flock of 500 hens. In 2006, Lloyd learned about organics and realized that his production practices were closely aligned with organic ideals, where hens are free-run and eggs are gathered by hand.
