Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Lammert Koonstra always dreamed about being a dairy farmer. So, in May, 1999, he and his family moved from Holland and settled on a farm in West Central Ontario.
In April 2009, Manfred & Inge Gerstgrasser welcomed the first pick-up of their certified organic milk. “Going organic has given us a much more relaxed lifestyle,” says Manfred of his dairy farm’s transition to organic in 2007. For the Gerstgrassers, the decision was motivated by environmental concerns and a desire for a simpler, sustainable way of life.
