Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Minten Dairy Farms has been shipping certified organic milk to Organic Meadow since May 2007 – a milestone that Joseph and Johanna Minten attribute to working together as a family.
In 2003, Cliff VanderPloeg began to think about organics after being disenchanted with some aspects of conventional faming. “I just thought there had to be a better way to farm - without antibiotics, herbicides and pesticides,” he says. After a well-planned transition, Cliff and his wife Marilyn proudly shipped their first Organic Meadow milk from their South Western Ontario farm in 2007.
