Family farmers network
Through Équiterre’s network of family farmers, you can receive organic baskets of fresh, locally grown produce delivered each week near your home or workplace. The network has been growing steadily since 1995 and now has more than 100 human-scale farms that feed over 35,000 Quebecers each year.

Some farms also offer winter baskets, generally delivered once every two weeks, from November to March. These baskets are primarily composed of root vegetables. Certified organic meat can also be ordered year-round from family farmers who offer it, without prior commitment on your part.
Participating produce and livestock farms are certified organic or in the process of certification and offer a short marketing circuit.
When you buy organic baskets of local produce in advance, you support local farms, guaranteeing their income and greatly facilitating their marketing. In exchange, family farmers offer subscribers a wide variety and satisfactory quantity of quality seasonal products with the greatest respect for the environment.
Équiterre created this network in conjunction with its values and mission. Its role and commitments to farms and the public are many. More than just a producer, Équiterre supports ecological agriculture in Quebec and helps it to thrive.
