Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...

  • Plovan Farms - The VanderPloeg Family

    Plovan Farms - The VanderPloeg 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.
  • Eshcol Farm - The Slater Family

    Eshcol Farm - The Slater Family

    Stew Slater, his wife Mari and their children operate the 150-acre Eschol Farm, located in Oxford County, Ontario. Milk from 25 cows - purebred Holsteins and crossbred Holstein/Brown Swiss - is sent to the Organic Meadow Co-operative.
