Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
After emigrating from the Netherlands in 1979, Theo and Gerda Booyink farmed in New Brunswick for 9 years, and then moved to a farm near Cornwall, Ontario. In 2002, the Booyinks received their organic certification.
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.
