Who are we?
The co-founders, Aurélie and Maxime, share a passion for the environment and conservation. After receiving degrees in biology and soil biodiversity, they established Jardin des Collines-de-l'Outaouais in 2020 with the goal of providing their local community with fresh, tasty, environmentally friendly and affordable fruits and vegetables. At the heart of their farm, Aurélie and Maxime work to make fresh and nutritious food more accessible. This is why Jardin des Collines-de-l'Outaouais is also a site where they scientifically develop tools and techniques for small-scale ecological agriculture for the benefit of all. Each of their actions and choices are made with full awareness of their environmental impacts. Jardin des Collines-de-l'Outaouais is committed to always making informed decisions that will never jeopardize the balance of their ecosystem. Agriculture without compromise!
Our mission to regenerate
Accelerating the world's transition to ecological agriculture.
Shifting our agricultural system from destructive to regenerative is imperative to achieve sustainability. Our mission is to accelerate this transition through our work and by empowering all farms that want to join in our mission to regenerate as many fields, and feed as many people as we can, together. We design, test, develop and share an integrated scalable ecological farm which can be massively duplicated—resulting in the greatest environmental benefit possible. Working day by day towards our goal.
Going beyond traditional market gardening
Our farm system, tools and services work together to enable a new ecological food system, while always remaining competitive to conventional farming prices. No more compromises.
Buying directly from the farm is also a guarantee of a tastier and more nutritious product! Fruits and vegetables are never fresher than when they are just harvested, except, of course, when it comes to delicious aged squash! Once cut from their connection to the ground, vegetables gradually lose the nutrients they have stored. At Jardin des Collines-de-l'Outaouais, crops are therefore organized to be ready at the time of delivery. This means that you will not receive stored products, but rather freshly harvested products! Unless, of course, the goal is to stock up or eat local produce in winter! Freshness without compromise!
After going through the wholesaler, the distributor and the retailer, the farmer receives the least amount of income from the fruit or vegetable he has grown. Buying directly from the farm is therefore of undeniable value. In addition to contributing directly to the local economy, buying directly from the farm allows farm workers to better support their families while offering you a competitive price. At Jardin des Collines-de-l'Outaouais, our delivery service allows us to not only provide you with a fresher order, but also to avoid you extra trips. If you are already on the road, we will be happy to welcome you at the farm. A responsible gesture without compromise!
