Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
“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.
After a number of years of bleak returns in conventional cash cropping, combined with the negative effects of chemical sprays on his family’s health and the environment around them, Ted transitioned his 250 acres of farmland to organic.
