    We still could use helping hands until the end of this month!

    Welcome! Beautiful land in a dead-end, CSA gardens, forest and pastures, pond, river. Many nearby lakes. 1 week minimum stay. Owned by six long-time friends.

    We produce a large variety of certified organic vegetables, greens and herbs; distributed directly to the consumers through Community Supported Agriculture and two public markets in the local area. Crops are covering about 4 ha every year. The rest of the farm includes above 30 ha of prairies and pastures, plus a maple forest dedicated to maple syrup production. We also operate 3 tunnel-greenhouses and a few hoophouses.

    Our land is nested in a dead end and it's south is bordered by the Riviere Noire. We like to call it a fertile and dusky jewel with a pond at its center.



    We have three mobile homes you can lodge in, and a room in the house basement if needed. The meals are shared at the common kitchen and are made from organic and/or fresh products from our farm and our neighbour's network (vegetables, fruits, meats, cheeses, breads, eggs) Vegetarian meals are easily conceivable but you have to share the table with enthusiastic carnivorous.

    Saint-Alban is a peaceful village, near fabulous sites for whoever likes cliff climbing, canoe, swimming or hiking. The Portneuf region is also well gifted for nature's lovers, and for those who prefer nightlife; the city of Quebec is only a one hour drive away.

    French is our common language but we also speak English and Spanish, although we suggest you to consider your stay at the farm as a French immersion.

    On a encore besoin d'un coup de main en ce moment et jusqu'à la fin du mois!

    La ferme est le projet de six amis de longue date, elle produit une grande variété de légumes et fines herbes destinés essentiellement à la vente directe; soit par le biais de l'agriculture soutenue par la communauté (ASC; les «paniers bio») et de deux marchés publics de la région. Les superficies en maraîchage couvrent environ 4 ha. Le reste de la ferme comprend une trentaine d'hectares en prairies et en pâturages bucoliques, ainsi qu'une érablière entaillée. Nous opérons aussi trois serres-tunnels et plusieurs tunnel-chenilles.

    La ferme est blottie au fond d'un cul-de-sac et son sud est bordé par la Rivière Noire. Un bijou de verdure et de brunante dont le coeur est serti d'un étang.

    Nous recherchons des gens sérieux, enclins à travailler un minimum de 5 heures par jour, cinq jours par semaine. Les travaux sont majoritairement liés aux légumes (plantation, sarclage, récolte, arrosage, semis, repiquage, emballage, livraisons à l'occasion) mais les gens habiles en rénovation trouveront chez nous des bâtiments plein de désirs charpentiers. Les talents culinaires sont aussi très appréciés!

    Pour loger à la ferme, trois roulottes sont aménagées et au besoin une chambre est généralement disponible au sous-sol de la maison. Les repas sont partagés à la cuisine commune avec les produits bio et frais de chez nous ou de notre réseau (légumes, fruits, viandes, fromages, pains, oeufs). Des repas végétariens sont facilement concevables, mais prévoir la présence autour de la table de carnivores enthousiastes.

    Saint-Alban est un village tranquille, près de sites fabuleux pour quiconque aime l'escalade, le canot, la baignade ou la randonnée. La région de Portneuf offre elle aussi beaucoup de possibilités, et pour les noctambules la ville de Québec n'est qu'à une heure de voiture.

    Nous demandons un séjour d'au moins une semaine.

    We'll be happy to bring you to the public market on Saturdays, it's a great place to really meet local people. The farm really is a lively place in summer, with many friends and business partners coming by. We have a nice network of awsome people around us!

    Helpers should expect to sometimes work in the heat and in the rain, must be ok with getting your hands and knees dirty. This said, we can always find work adapted to your capacities. We ask helpers to work for five hours a day, five days a week. We owners work often over 12 hours a day, six to seven days a week. As much as we enjoy sharing good times with our guests we don't get so much free time as seasonnal workers. But we try to give good advice on how to enjoy your stay when we lack time to be the touristic guides we'd love to be.

    We are looking for serious helpers, willing to help a minimum of 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. The chores are mostly linked to the crops (planting, weeding, harvests, watering, seeding) but people with knowledge in building maintenance will find various opportunities to help us. Also culinary talents are well appreciated.

    Workawayers will be staying in trailers set in a camp at the back of the barn. We use a well equiped and spacious common kitchen that's inside the barn. There is a backhouse dry toilet and a shower near the trailers.
    Lunch and dinner are shared in the common kitchen. We like to take turns for cooking and washing dishes, using a blackboard. But people who don't enjoy cooking don't have to, they just have to do more dishes! Helpers take their breakfast in the common kitchen while we have ours in the house. Helpers are free to use the batrhrooms, the living room and the office in the house.
    Smoking on property but not in the house or common kitchen.
