Our Organic Farmers
Meet some of the faces behind Organic Meadow...
Ron and Debbie Vice are third generation farmers who, over the years, had developed an acute awareness of environmental issues that were threatening their existing way of farming. In 2000, they made a decision to grow crops without the use of herbicides and commercial fertilizers. With the help of their fellow farmer friend Harry Peeters, the Vices began their transition to organic certification.
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.
