Awesome Blossom Orchard
Awesome Blossom Orchard is a micro-farm and is a family-owned business that offers local produce, practices regenerative and intensive agriculture using the principles of permaculture, “No till” vegetable beds and naturally rejuvenating the earth to produce and provide healthy, delicious, high quality, nutrient-dense food.
Our Farm’s mission is to offer the best tasting, finest quality, and nutrient-dense food to the local community. Our Farm uses only natural and sustainable farming methods, free from pesticides and chemical fertilizers leaving a smaller carbon footprint while simultaneously improving the health of our members and our local community.
The 118 acre Micro-Farm located In Sainte-Justine-de-Newton is an hour from Montreal, half an hour from the West Island, about 20 minutes from Vaudreuil-Soulange (primary market) is a prime location in its country setting. The property consist of a fruit orchard, vegetable, herb & flower garden, mixed forest and a maple park to be exploited in the future.
We have chosen the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model as our main distribution system. A “CSA” is a model in which both the farmer and the members have a mutual interest in the crop.
Aside the CSA program, you will be able to have access to the farm's produce through local markets and coop.
Had you told me five years ago I would eventually be farming, I would of never believed it. Our journey into farming took many years of development and research. First, our ultimate goal was to grow produce that are nutrient-dense and full of vitamins without using chemicals or pesticides. Second, we began looking for farmers with lots of experience in what we wanted to accomplish. At first, we were told by many that our plans were not possible due to the bad quality of the earth now days. But once we tapped into the right circle of farmers, the knowledge came to us. It's all about regenerative agriculture.
After spending a few years researching and planning, my husband and I were astonished about what we learned and the growing techniques we have discovered. Our first successful commercial garden was created in the summer of 2020. Since, we have relocated on a beautiful agricultural property. A small idea grew into a beautiful garden, offering over 30 types of vegetables and a beautiful orchard offering multiple fruits.
I, Marise Côté, spent a life long career in marketing, graphic design and production, as well as a yoga teacher trained in Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Integrated Energy Therapy. My dreams since childhood was to live on a farm. A dream I had forgotten about- It is my family, siblings, and close friends who reminded me the dream came true! :-) My new found passion is creating beauty, growing healthy foods and serving a community.
I, Richard Bray, have a career in commercial real estate and financing and I've lived as a gentleman farmer and owned a hobby farm for 18 years. My first love was the horse boarding operation on the farm. Then I developed a passion for regenerative agriculture, rebuilding the topsoil to create amazing produce and found a love connection with our bees.
