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.
Every day Orrie, Andrea and Charlie Cumpson give thanks for the “honour and privilege” of being able to work on the land, with animals and with their hands in the soil. Their family farm, located north of Kingston, Ontario, is quite diversified, but the main focus is on their beautiful herd of Holstein and Jersey cows.
