For Linda and Fritz Laepple farming is not just a source of income, it’s a lifeyle. Since moving to Waterloo Region from Southern Germany in 1998, the Laepples and their seven children have created a farm which is truly a model of self-sufficiency. While growing virtually all their own food, the diversity of the 187-acre mixed farm near Baden provides revenue year round.
The Laepples produce and sell a wide variety of farm products—grain, potatoes, beef, hay and firewood—involving the efforts of the entire family. The farm has also received organic certification through the Organic Crop Producers and Processors (OCPP). Although it’s an involved process, the move to organic certification reflects the Laepple’s commitment to the environment and the concern they have for the food they grow and sell. They are finding that this same concern is shared increasingly by their customers. The people who buy their custom freezer beef or the Laepple’s organic potatoes want to know how their food is grown. They want to know what their animals are fed and how they’re kept. The Laepples are only too happy to explain.
