What we do
How It Works
Becoming a member of our baskets means to encourage local agriculture. You have the opportunity to know directly where your vegetables come from and you also get to meet your market gardeners!
Every week we will tell you through email what you will receive in your basket a few days in advance. This helps you plan your weekly meals but also helps you know which containers to bring. Another reason to become a member is to reduce the use of waste containers.
Quality and Quantity
You recieve fresh vegetables that have no trace of pesticides, herbicides nor any other chemical fertilizers. Plus, you have way more veggies for your money. We always make sure to give you 15% more than your local grocery store.
Help your Farmers to plan
By becoming a member before the season starts you help us plan our season to serve you better! This means better service, better veggies!
Gift Card Formula
Once you register and pay you are officially a member. We will give you your gift card when we see you at the delivery point you chose.
Every week, we will meet you at the delivery point, bring your gift card and you reusable bags. To make our job easier, it's best if you choose between 20$ and 30$ worth of vegetables per week.
This formula is very similar to the regular vegetable baskets and takes the form of a mini market.
Why the gift card? You could choose exactly what you want, nothing is imposed.
Beginning of baskets : Mid-June for 18 weeks

The Farm and Farmers
The small harvest is a micro-farm located in a charming village in Sawyerville (Estrie).
We produce on 1 hectare in natural market gardening. We started our small business in 2018.
Luc And Myriam
Thanks to the influence of his family, Luc dreams of starting a micro-farm it's been several years. He has a great interest in healthy eating, ecology and chickens. Myriam decided to join this amazing project! She has lots of talents that benefit the farm, loves nature and is ready to meet all challenges. She loves vegetables, people and her cat.
We both come from Montreal, that’s actually where we met! We are both determined and really excited for this great adventure. Our common interests and passions make us a solid team. Our intentions are to offer quality food by having a natural, local and responsible production. It’s essential for us not to use any harmful or chemical products that could harm humans and the environment. We also try to limit the use of non recyclable materials in all activities at the farm, especially plastic!
We truly thank you in advance to encourage us to become the agricultural succession of tomorrow.
Sustainable development is a fundamental principal that guides all activities at the farm on a daily basis. Our desire is to create agricultural production that nourishes people and creates profit without creating environmental problems.
Here are some strategies to achieve this goal.
This type of production guaranties a food production that limits the environmental impacts. We are committed not to use any pesticides, herbicides or any other chemicals. The plant varieties used are open-pollinated and are not genetically modified (GMOs). The fertilizers used are manure or compost produced directly on the farm. No synthetic (chemical) fertilizer is used on the farm. Animal breeding is absent from growth hormones and antibiotics and is done in compliance with them.
The demand for fresh and local vegetables keeps on increasing with time. Transportation is an important factor to consider for any food production industry. For this reason and many others, our desire is to provide products to our local population.
Zero Waste Company
Every farm business must manage the waste it produces in a responsible manner. At Small Harvest Farm, we aim to minimize the pollution of air, water and soil. To do so, we rely on the integration of agriculture and livestock activities so that the waste of one activity serves the other. For example, manure from poultry farming is reused as a fertilizer for plants. In contrast, crop residues of fruits and vegetables are used as food for chickens. To reduce water consumption, we irrigate our crops with rainwater collected and stored on site. This avoids depleting the reserves
