Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Steven, Karen and their family devote their time to growing, storing and supplying nutritious organic grains for other Organic Meadow farmers. They have 11 storage bins, a dryer bin, and a scale that can weigh trainloads of grain and a new seed plant in operation. Future plans include a warehouse, blending equipment and more storage as needed.
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.
