Earth Guardian – Organic Meadow: What is the secret behind the successful co-operative for family-owned local organic farmers?

Organic produce is revitalizing the small family owned farms in Ontario, and Organic Meadow has been a key driver in linking the farmers to the consumers. Organic Meadow also encourages consumers to get to know the farmers, and how the food is produced. What are the benefits of the co-operative? How do sustainable farming practices affect the animals, soil, and consumers? How would the introduction of genetically modified alfalfa threaten the livelihood and the produce of organic farmers? My guest is Ted Zettel, General Manager at Organic Meadow Inc located in Guelph, Ontario.
