Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Ron and Debbie Vice are third generation farmers who, over the years, had developed an acute awareness of environmental issues that were threatening their existing way of farming. In 2000, they made a decision to grow crops without the use of herbicides and commercial fertilizers. With the help of fellow Organic Meadow Co-operative farmer Harry Peeters, the Vices began their transition to organic certification.
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.
