Tony McQuail was an early adopter of rotational grazing and has decades of experience in pasture management and fencing systems. At Meeting Place Organic Farm at Lucknow, Ontario the McQuail family raises grass-fed and grass-finished beef, pastured pork and pastured poultry, and have experimented with cocktail cover crops. They often use horses for farm work. Under their nearly 50 years of stewardship, the farm’s soil organic matter has risen from 1.5 % to a between 3.5 and 7%. Tony and his wife Fran continue to be actively involved after transferring the farm operation to their daughter Katrina. Tony, who has a degree in Environmental Studies, is also active in knowledge-sharing through on-farm apprenticing and farm training programs, developing government policy, and his involvement in several farm organizations, including the NFU.
