Pick-your-own strawberries - CURRENTLY CLOSE !
Come harvest your own strawberries, fresh from the field. Make it a special family outing – or drop by on your way home from work. Remember: the only thing more delicious than a farm-fresh strawberry is a farm-fresh strawberry you’ve plucked from the garden with your own hands…
Pick-your-own raspberries - WILL START IN JULY
In July, as strawberry season starts to wind down, there’s no reason to stray too far from our fields, because that’s when the raspberries start to plump up! Raspberry picking is an equally wonderful, albeit lesser known, group activity. Delight in the great outdoors while you gather these juicy, ruby-red wonders from the bush.
Pick-your-own tomatoes, peppers and eggplants - WILL START IN SEPTEMBER
Our vegetable U-pick starts up near the end of the summer, when our tomatoes, peppers and eggplants are just begging to be scooped up and taken home.
Locally grown, chock-full of vitamins and minerals, and tasty beyond compare… there’s simply nothing better, or better for you!
Let Agathe tickle your taste buds
All of our preserves are made with fruits and vegetables from the Vaillancourt farm. Jam, chutney, relish, beets, pickles and marinades galore – with no preservatives to hamper the experience.
Convenience and selection
We offer a full selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally made foods, preserves, dairy products and baked goods (just like grandma used to make!) – not to mention ready-to-plant annuals and herbs for your own garden.
Vegetable and Fruit Baskets - 2020 Season - REGISTRATION ARE CLOSE
We know how valuable – and limited – your time is. It’s not always easy to find a spare moment to pick up fresh produce from local farmers.
Here at the Vaillancourt family farm, we are strong believers in the importance of shopping and eating locally as part of an environmentally friendly lifestyle. And we are proud to help you make that happen, with a basket of fresh, locally grown produce prepared for you every week.
Pickups are scheduled to begin the week of June 29, 2020, and continue until the week of October 12, 2020, for a total of 16 weeks. An email will be sent to you mid-June to confirm the first pickup date and provide you with further details about the rest of the season.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We’ll have your basket of farm-fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs ready for you to pick up every Thursday, between noon and 7 p.m., right here at our farm stand, conveniently located off Route 335 in Laval.
Each basket will contain between 6 and 12 seasonal selections, depending on the basket size you choose. In addition, you’ll find a few surprises to tantalize your taste buds and coupons for specially priced items at the farm.
And for our corporate clients, we can prepare and deliver baskets for your entire staff. Be sure to contact us for more details!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
We offer two basket sizes to suit any sized household. We know you love fresh produce, but we also realize that a full basket can sometimes be a little too much for some. Which is why we give you the option of a smaller weekly quantity.
Standard Weekly Basket – Between 9 and 12 selections of vegetables, fruits and herbs. The cost for the standard basket is $25 a week (including taxes) for a total of $400 for the entire season. Ideal for families.
- Small Weekly Basket – Between 6 and 9 selections of vegetables, fruits and herbs. The cost of the small basket is $15 a week (including taxes) for a total of $240 for the entire season. Ideal for one person.
If you plan to be away at any point between June and October, you can delegate someone else to pick up and enjoy your baskets, or you can postpone up to two baskets to the end of the season. Please let us know of any changes at least one week in advance or, better yet, indicate your vacation dates in your registration form.
We ask for full payment or a 50% down payment via credit card when you return your online registration form to reserve your spot. Note that full payment is greatly appreciated and helps us better plan out our season. Otherwise, the remaining 50% is due when you come get your first basket in June.
Below is a partial list of some of the vegetables and fruits that may be included in your basket this summer. Our commitment to local farming means that all items will be grown either right here or at a partner farm in Quebec that practices sustainable agriculture.
