  • Description


    We are an organic vegetable farm in greenhouse and fields. We chose to sell our vegetables according to the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model, C is a model that binds consumers and producers without intermediaries. This way of producing short circuit gives us the opportunity to meet our customers who are in fact our partners every week. Our farm is in its 19th year, We have developed a know-how that we like to share. The farm is located near the park of the Saguenay fjord, a milieu of great beauty. Our farm is 3 km from the village of Petit-saguenay located in the greater Saguenay-Lac St-Jean region of Quebec. A lot of activity is offered to you: hiking, discovery of the marine environment of the Saguenay fjord, fishing riding etc.
