Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
The Groenewegens milk about 30 Holstein and Jersey cows, which are fed mostly organic pasture grass for seven months of the year. During the colder months, the cows eat organic barley, corn, peas, balage, and kelp, and are turned out every day to exercise and socialize. Homeopathic remedies are used to keep the cattle healthy.
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.
