Who we are
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.
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

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.

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.
