WELCOME TO THE
VAN OSCH FAMILY FARM
The new standard in sustainable farming practices.
Three Generations of Cattle Raising and Farming Crops
Our farm was started when Harry and Paula immigrated to Canada from Holland on their honeymoon in 1954. They settled in the fertile Crediton, Ontario area in Middlesex County.
They had five children, three daughters and two sons with both boys growing up to carry on farming. Van Osch Farms was incorporated with their sons Gerald and Fred, as partners in 1978.
The farm evolved from a dairy cow and cash crop operation to the current beef cattle and cash crop operation in 1971. In 1985, Harry and Paula retired and were succeeded by Gerald and Fred, who then at the helm were eager to grow and feed their passion for the beef business.
Along with expanding their beef business, their families grew as well, over the years with both brothers having a daughter and two sons. The third generation is now also taking up the family tradition. Gerald’s two sons, Kurtis and Jaron, and Fred’s son, Brendon are actively involved in the current farming operation and they continue to pass on their passion for the land and animals to the growing fourth generation of Van Osch farmers.
