Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Chris and Barb VanderVloet are determined to help more than one of their 13 children to get into farming. This goal encouraged them to move to organic production - and adopt some creative thinking.
In 2003, Cliff VanderPloeg began to think about organics after being disenchanted with some aspects of conventional faming. “I just thought there had to be a better way to farm - without antibiotics, herbicides and pesticides,” he says. After a well-planned transition, Cliff and his wife Marilyn proudly shipped their first Organic Meadow milk from their South Western Ontario farm in 2007.
