Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Odilia Osthaus always wanted to be a farmer. Growing up in Sreiburd, Germany, it was an unusual ambition for a woman. But it wasn’t unusual to choose organic farming. So when Odilia found a 200 acre farm near Durham, Ontario 20 years ago, going organic was the obvious choice.
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.
