Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
After a number of years of bleak returns in conventional cash cropping, combined with the negative effects of chemical sprays on his family’s health and the environment around them, Ted transitioned his 250 acres of farmland to organic.
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.
