For over 20 years, Équiterre family farmers’ organic baskets have marked the arrival of warm, sunny days.  

The sun is out and it's now time to register to organic summer baskets! For its 21st season, this community-supported agriculture (CSA) program will rely on a vibrant network that extends across the province (and New Brunswick) to meet the growing consumer demand. With an abundance of farms delivering produce to the 550 drop-off points for over 19,300 subscriptions, the network is booming—driven by the energy and enthusiasm of a new generation of farmers committed to making local, organic, equitable farming a unique and meaningful experience. “Today, over 57,000 people enjoy Équiterre’s organic baskets,” says Équiterre Executive Director Sidney Ribaux. “The program has been a huge, runaway success, as shown by the popularity of the baskets for 20 years and the enthusiasm of these young, intrepid farmers vying to offer the best local produce.”

Aurélien Pochard, co-owner of the Jardins du Chat Noir farm “I’m proud to be a family farmer today. The first step for me was becoming an organic basket subscriber. There’s something special about connecting with other people who are passionate about food.”
