Our certified organic vegetables
Organic vegetables certified by Ecocert Canada
Since 2015, certified organic vegetables have been produced on our lands. At first, the vegetables were produced by Jardins Les Petites Écores. The gardens, started by Hélène, Eric’s wife, are now merged with the farm since 2019. Between us, it is still Helen who takes care of it.
CSA Vegetable basket
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between the consumer and the farmer. By buying baskets in the spring for the season, the consumer can support early season expenses, such as purchasing seeds, heating the greenhouse and various materials. In return, the farmer undertakes to deliver a basket of fresh vegetables each week to the specified delivery point. The CSA is a way for you to eat fresh, organic and local products while supporting your farmer.
In 2019, about thirty vegetables, including 90 different cultivars will be grown in our fields, as well as ten varieties of herbs, such as coriander, basil, oregano, parsley, thyme, etc.
Organic blueberries will come from the farm Au Fin Délice at Très-St-Rédempteur.
Organic apples will come from Verger de Hudson in Hudson.
Strawberries (non-organic) will come from La Belle de coteau in Coteau-du-Lac.
Here’s an example of what you might find in baskets at different times of the season. In each of your baskets, you will get between 8 and 12 organic vegetables from our gardens. If there is a vegetable you do not like, there will be a possibility to exchange it with another vegetable.
