Featured family farmers

Solution - Fermiers en vedette

Equiterre’s network of family farmers is an exemplary model of ecological agriculture and market proximity. Its expertise is increasingly recognized and cited as an example to follow.

Our family farmers inspire both Quebec’s farming community and the public at large.

They show that this model is viable and profitable.

Hats off to our family farmers!
