Weekly Basket of Organic Fruit and Vegetables

Through our platform, viandebioetnaturelle.com, we encourage people to subscribe to receive a weekly basket of organic fruits and vegetables during the summer.
An excellent way to do this is to join Equiterre's Organic Baskets program. It allows you to receive, throughout the summertime, a weekly basket of good-quality fruits and vegetables produced without synthetic pesticides by a Quebec farmer who is committed to the health of both people and the environment.

Encourage the Local Economy

Delivered by the farmers themselves, the organic baskets of Equiterre's network of family farms help support the local economy by encouraging the farmers of Quebec. We strongly support this option, given that a farm disappears in La Belle Province every day and that most industrial farms use pesticides, insecticides, and GMOs in their crops, without knowing the actual long-term effects these products have on the health of humans.

All farmers who are part of the network of Equiterre family farms cultivate Quebec land with care and wish to make a difference in our communities by rejecting the dominant model of industrial agriculture. For example, while in Canada the average age of farmers is fifty-four, the median age of Equiterre family farmers is thirty-six. This is a network where young farmers adhere to the concept of organic local production and depend on the support of the public to succeed and continue their activities!

Freshness and Better Taste

You will see for yourself the difference: your food will be delivered fresh and, above all, will taste better. What's more, by joining the program, you not only get a basket of good fruits and vegetables each week, but you also help reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, knowing that imported food travels an average of 2,500 km before getting to our plates.

In addition to encouraging the Quebec economy by buying your Equiterre organic basket, you minimize your chances of contracting diseases related to the ingestion of chemicals in fruits and vegetables. Indeed, all the farms in the Equiterre network are certified (or in the process of being certified) organic. The organic certification guarantees that the food has been produced according to Quebec's organic farming standards.

By purchasing food from organic farms in Quebec, you can be sure it complies with organic certification standards (see here www.cartv.gouv.qc.ca)
