Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Harry and Jeannie Peeters’ organic journey began 20 years ago on their family farm near Lindsay, Ontario. Harry’s father purchased the 350 acres of land in 1958 with a commitment to using the “natural blessings” of the farm: good soil, good crops and good cattle. When Harry and Jeannie took the farm over, they too were not interested in chemically-enhanced farming and, in 2001, completed their official transition to organic milk production.
After a number of years of bleak returns in conventional cash cropping, combined with the negative effects of chemical sprays on his family’s health and the environment around them, Ted transitioned his 250 acres of farmland to organic.
