Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
“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.
Stew Slater, his wife Mari and their children operate the 150-acre Eschol Farm, located in Oxford County, Ontario. Milk from 25 cows - purebred Holsteins and crossbred Holstein/Brown Swiss - is sent to the Organic Meadow Co-operative.
