Grey Dufferin Community Pasture
Michael Swidersky graduated with an agriculture diploma from the University of Guelph in 1998. He farms with his wife Amber and two teenage children in Melancthon Township in north Dufferin County. Their farm business consists of a commercial flock of annual pasture lambing ewes, custom grazing groups of steers and heifers and a cut flower business which is operated by Amber. 100% of their farm is perennial pasture with no hay or crops grown. A particular interest of Mike’s is intensive grazing and extensive pasture management. He has managed the local community pasture (Grey Dufferin Community Pasture) for the past 8 years. In 2019 a total of 800 steers and heifers as well as 300 ewes and their lambs were grazed.
