Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
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.
Chris and Barb VanderVloet are determined to help more than one of their 13 children to get into farming. This goal encouraged them to move to organic production - and adopt some creative thinking.
