On behalf of all the members of the Family Farmers Network as well as our two great partners, Cycles Devinci and Table Tours, thank you for participating! Thank you for supporting organic, local and solidary farming, a dynamic and important economic vector in all regions of Quebec, Eastern Ontario and New Brunswick.

EAT LOCAL AND ORGANIC: TO HELP THE PLANET

The vegetables in our organic baskets are grown without synthetic pesticides, from seeds that have not been genetically modified (GMO) and are planted in a crop rotation system. Your farmer works hard to keep the soil healthy by using green fertilizers, installing birdhouses and anti-insect netting to guard against invasive species, while keeping the good ones in the soil. Your farmer uses muscle power as much as anything to keep the soil soft.

Supporting your family farmer is also a great way of ensuring that you’ll be eating high-quality, extremely fresh vegetables, bursting with nutrition, which are picked the day before or the day of delivery at the peak of ripeness! And it’s a way to support local supply practices, which significantly cut down on the number of kilometers your food travels and therefore on greenhouse gas emissions. Équiterre encourages you to support local organic farming practices that feed our community while respecting the environment and taking care of our planet!
