Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
The year 2008 was a big one for Jamie and Maida Edwards. In the space of a few months, they got married, celebrated a honeymoon and took over an existing organic dairy farm outside of Westport in Eastern Ontario.
Ron and Debbie Vice are third generation farmers who, over the years, had developed an acute awareness of environmental issues that were threatening their existing way of farming. In 2000, they made a decision to grow crops without the use of herbicides and commercial fertilizers. With the help of fellow Organic Meadow Co-operative farmer Harry Peeters, the Vices began their transition to organic certification.
