Community Supported Agriculture
The Family Farmers Network
Today, the Network inspired by Équiterre brings together more than 130 organic farms in Quebec and New Brunswick, feeding more than 20,000 families every year (which amounts to nearly 60,000 people), as well as numerous partners who provide convenient basket pickup points.
Your farmers, Benoît Duval and his family, practice organic farming in harmony with nature on the principle of living soils in permaculture. Our land is located in the heart of Lanaudière, in l'Assomption, less than 35 km north of Montreal. This project aims to conserve Quebec's agricultural heritage and provide freshness on our plates, from local biodiversity.
We grow 50 types of fruits, vegetables and herbs that we cultivate in different ways to enhance the flavor of our plates! Several of our varieties are ancestral, selected for their unique flavor and rusticity. For example, we produce several varieties of berries, cantaloupe melons, multicolored carrots and purple beans!
The Organic Summer Baskets (regular format at $25 or family size at $50) are delivered each week for 20 weeks, from mid-June to November. The larger Winter Organic Baskets are delivered monthly from November to March, for 5 months total. The winter baskets contain the same vegetables, but with more root vegetables (beets, carrots, turnips) and preserves (garlic, cabbage, onions, potatoes, squash).
We offer baskets of fruit and vegetables, certified organic by Ecocert Canada, which are freshly picked from the farm. Our produce is different from those in grocery stores, because we cultivate ancestral varieties, preserved for their unique flavors and varieties. For more information on delivery locations, product availability, or for any questions on the baskets, contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 514-654-2428 or visit us at one of our basket delivery spots. In addition, if you are interested in tasting our products during the year, several markets are organized at Parc Molson and the Angus Market, located south of Parc André-Laurendeau, in the Rosemont-la Petite Patrie neighborhood in Montreal.
