About Our Producers

 

Harmony Organic consists of 14 certified organic grass roots family farms located across Southern Ontario. Each farm was carefully selected to ensure the families and their farming operations are an ideal match for Harmony’s philosophies and principles. This includes the highest standards of animal welfare and adhering to sustainable farming practices including comprehensive composting, wind, solar power and renewable energy sources. Although each farm is unique unto themselves, we all share common values and goals and are committed to preserving an organic way of life.

 
Each of the/our 14 farms that produce Harmony Organic milk has been certified organic and meets the organic standards set forth by the Canadian Government. To obtain organic certification no synthetic fertilizers or chemicals are used on the farm for at least three years. After this time period, the cows must be fed solely organic feed for another twelve months before their milk is eligible for processing under the certified organic label. Each farm must keep accurate records and a subjected to a yearly farm audit.
