Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Harry and Jeannie Peeters’ organic journey began 20 years ago on their family farm near Lindsay, Ontario. Harry’s father purchased the 350 acres of land in 1958 with a commitment to using the “natural blessings” of the farm: good soil, good crops and good cattle. When Harry and Jeannie took the farm over, they too were not interested in chemically-enhanced farming and, in 2001, completed their official transition to organic milk production.
“What we love most about organic farming is seeing our livestock grazing and roaming free,” says Cyril Schneider of his 35 milking cows. Cyril, his wife Myriam and their three children arrived in Canada from Europe in 1999 looking for a farm with “nice green pastures”. They found it near a small village in Eastern Ontario.
