Natural Farm

What Is a Natural Farm?

A natural farm is one that uses traditional methods as much as possible. Natural farms are not necessarily organic, because, to be labeled organic, Quebec farms must obtain organic certification, which in some cases can be time-consuming.

Natural farms are businesses, each with its own farming methods. These are presented on our website, so we welcome you to consult that technical data to inform yourself of the farming methods that each of the farms uses.

Unlike industrial farms, the majority of natural farms use no – or very little – genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in their crops and give no – or very few – antibiotics and vaccines to their livestock to fatten them or accelerate growth.

If they do use certain pesticides or insecticides, they are those that are judged to pose no danger to human health and have not been banned by the government. This therefore ensures top-quality products.

The Advantages of Buying from a Natural Farm

There are many advantages associated with buying meat from natural Quebec farms, beginning with a decreased risk of contracting diseases related to the use of pesticides, insecticides, and GMOs.

In addition, the environmental effects are all positive when buying from a natural Quebec farm. Greenhouse gas emissions are lower because local purchases require less transportation and damage to the ecosystem is diminished, given that these Quebec farms cultivate and raise their poultry, livestock, and fruit and vegetables naturally.

Freer animals

Moreover, chickens, cows, and other animals enjoy more freedom in natural farms compared to animals from other Quebec farms that are not considered natural.

Do not hesitate to consult the listings of Quebec farms that we present on our site. In addition to the farming methods used, you will find other useful information, such as contact information for the farms and details on harvesting their products.

It is also possible (and recommended) to visit the farms, check out their facilities, and ask the farmers questions before buying. Enjoy your visit and happy shopping!
