We bought a Heritage home that was one of the first organic farms to establish itself in the area. The Outaouais region has a history of organic farming that goes back to long before we called it organic. We are proud to carry on the tradition of small family farming on this beautiful, healthy piece of land in the area known as La Petite Nation.
We will operate Ferme La Machine from 2 locations. Our 5 acre Homestead in Montpellier, Quebec near Lac Schryer, and an additional 2 acres on the Plateforme Agricole in L’Ange Gardien, Quebec.
We are new farmers starting our first season and we are pleased to be participating in the Agricultural Incubator program offered by the CREDETAO. Most of our production will be done at the Plateforme Agricole in L’ange Gardien which provides us with 2 acres of Organically certified land Certification by EcoCert Canada.
This year we’ve planned to produce 101 delicious varieties of 26 types of organic vegetables, fruits and herbs. Many of our cultivars are heirloom and were chosen for their natural resilience, rarity and taste! We will have staples that you are used to and new veggies to discover.
Our veggies will be available through CSA Organic baskets, delivered weekly to a drop off point in your area and in local farmers’ markets.
