Who we are


Johanne Brodeur


Born into a Québécois family of agricultural producers, I learn quickly all the ins and outs of the business. After my administrative studies, I obtained my first chicken farm in 1980. Following some health problems, I decided to change my nutrition for healthier choices. This is where I discovered the benefits of organic products. To be consistent with my new values and lifestyle, in 2000, I acquire land that I cultivate organically. Since being certified organic in 2006, I am devoted exclusively to organic culture.


Pierre Verly


Native of Switzerland, with its immense mountains and smaller spaces, I grew conscious of the importance a farmer has on his environment. After finishing my schooling in agriculture, I immigrated to Quebec in 1981. I experimented with many different techniques in conventional crops: direct seeding, ridge tillage, strip-spraying, reduced dosage, as well as crops with agricultural inputs. After a course in organic farming in 1995, I started the transition of my land to become certified organic in 2000



L'Arome des Champs is an alliance of good heart and values shared between Johanne Brodeur and Pierre Verly. In 2010, their passion for agriculture and its evolution brought Johanne and Pierre to work under the same company after having collaborated for the last 6 years. The courses offered in organic farming along with the combined efforts between organic farmers has helped l'Arome des Champs with their progression and to continue its evolution. 



Our values

We are inspired by the four pillars of agro-economy which are:

For us, modern organic agriculture is the answer to the problems faced by conventional farming methods.

We are convinced that every living being contributes to the cycle of life and it is important to maintain this cycle on our farms.

Our choices are oriented towards a decrease of needs instead of increasing or maintaining high levels of consumption in diverse resources.

We unite in favour of economic and social justice for all.

Our fields

We harvest more than 200HA of land 100% organic in the area of Bromont.

We rotate between 5 different varieties as follows:

- soy beans

- corn

- mixed grains (oats, wheat, peas)

- spelt

- wheat

- sunflower


Our grains

organic corn

This type of grain is over 2000 years old and was discovered by Christopher Columbus in Central America (Mexico). For many years, our farm does a test plot of open-pollination corn which is under the supervision of the Co-Op Agrobio of Quebec. Organic corn is the most difficult to produce organically. This crop pushes us to research which in turn perfects and betters our techniques.

organic spelt

Spelt, a robust grain, is as old as 5000 years, and originates from Asia. It is peculiar since its hull (the grain's envelope) protects itself from disease and extreme cold. New varieties of high-yield wheat almost made spelt disappear. Due to great efforts made by organic farming, spelt has a newfound gain due to its high nutrition value.

organic wheat

We harvest a red spring wheat destined for baking flour. Wheat appeared 800 years before Jesus Christ in the Mesopotamian region (Middle East today). It is planted at every 5 inches at the beginning of the season with light organic fertilization.

organic soya beans

Our white-hilum soy bean is used in the making of of soy milk and tofu. Soy bean is a legume originating in Asia over 4000 years ago. It is planted at every 30 inches to ease weeding. A special attention is necessary when harvest and storing in order to guarantee we meet the requirements needed for human consumption.

organic sunflower

  Oleic sunflower is a variety of sunflower that is grown for its oil-rich seeds. Unlike other varieties of sunflower, oleic contains higher levels of oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid beneficial to health. Sunflower is a high oleic oil type sunflower. We process it directly on the farm to make cold-pressed oleic organic sunflower oil.
