Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
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.
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.
