Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
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.
New visitors to Ted and Mary Lou Minten’s farm are often shown a large family portrait and introduced to their 10 children. Family is paramount for the Mintens, and they appreciate the help they get from their children as they are able.
