Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Steven, Karen and their family devote their time to growing, storing and supplying nutritious organic grains for other Organic Meadow farmers. They have 11 storage bins, a dryer bin, and a scale that can weigh trainloads of grain and a new seed plant in operation. Future plans include a warehouse, blending equipment and more storage as needed.
The Biemonds immigrated to Canada from Holland in 1981 with their four children and bought a dairy farm near Iroquois, Ontario. At first they farmed conventionally, but the costs involved and their health concerns about using chemicals forced Pieter and Maria to look at alternative methods. In 1989, the Biemonds quit conventional farming and began farming organically.
