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.
The Biemonds immigrated to Canada from Holland in 1981 with their four children and bought a dairy farm near Iroquois, Ontario. At first they farmed conventionally, but the costs involved and their health concerns about using chemicals forced Pieter and Maria to look at alternative methods. In 1989, the Biemonds quit conventional farming and began farming organically.
