In April 2009, Manfred & Inge Gerstgrasser welcomed the first pick-up of their certified organic milk. “Going organic has given us a much more relaxed lifestyle,” says Manfred of his dairy farm’s transition to organic in 2007. For the Gerstgrassers, the decision was motivated by environmental concerns and a desire for a simpler, sustainable way of life.
Amy Darroch began to fulfill her lifelong dream this past July on her newly purchased farm just south of Peterborough . From the time her parents began dairy farming twenty five years ago, when Amy was just a toddler, she had a passion for animals and she knew she had been bitten by the farming bug.
