6 reasons to subscribe to our organic vegetable baskets: for better health, a stronger community and unparalleled taste pleasure

Did you know that the vegetables you find at the grocery store were selected for their ability to travel long distances, not for their flavor? This is why they are often harvested before being ripe and lack taste.

At Ferme les Petites Écores, we grow organic vegetables with seed varieties selected for their exceptional flavor. Our vegetables are harvested by hand, just before delivery, to guarantee optimal freshness. Here is 6 reasons to choose our organic vegetable baskets.

1. For flavor

Awaken your senses to true taste is the farm's slogan. Our vegetables taste different, because in organic farming we use different varieties of vegetable seeds. Our customers often notice this with carrots and our tomatoes which have more flavor than tomatoes from supermarkets.

2. For freshness and quality

Our vegetables are harvested the day before or the same day of delivery to guarantee optimal freshness. We also explain how to properly store your vegetables to maximize their freshness at home in our newsletter for subscribers.

3. For diversity

Are you ready to try beet brownies ? It was with this recipe that I managed to get my family to eat more beets. Throughout the season, I support you with the weekly newsletter and the private Facebook group to share our recipes and those of other subscribers. Our regular basket (around 32$/week) allows you to try new vegetables through 19 weeks and with more than 40 varieties of vegetables. Want to try a kohlrabi salad?

4. For flexibility

Our personalized basket is the most popular because it allows you to select the vegetables you want. Our subscribers love this basket for its flexibility to choose the frequency of orders and to be able to take the number of weeks of vacation they need.

5. For the community

Having a basket of vegetables means knowing where your food comes from and knowing those who grow it. By supporting a local farm, you ensure that you are supporting the local economy and building a connection with the community around you. My greatest reward as a market gardener is getting to know you and seeing your intrigued children come to pick up their vegetables. By subscribing to our vegetable baskets, not only will you eat fresh and tasty food, but you will also support something even bigger, a local food network for the community.

6. To take care of my health

Health professionals constantly tell us to eat more vegetables for healthy health benefits and less processed foods. I was the first to tell my subscribers that I was a market gardener with bad shoes and that I didn't like all vegetables. However, with time, changing habits and trying recipes, I eat a lot more vegetables than before. And I see a difference in my health since I changed my diet! Subscribing to a basket is often the start of a change of habit or the little extra push to eat more fresh vegetables.

7. Bonus: For the pleasure of eating

In our continual lack of time, we too often forget to stop and eat with family, friends or colleagues. This is the true pleasure of eating, the connection between us all.
