We realized early on that if we want to create value for our clients, we must transcend marketing stories, practice truly sustainable agriculture and provide our clients with exquisite, unique products.
Regenerative or sustainable farmers make the following claims:
Economic impact: we produce high quality, exquisite products for a niche market. Clients pay a fair price. The value proposition must be balanced. Clients do not pay for our inefficiencies. Money flows into our community.
Environmental impact: efficient production minimizes waste and we maximize recycled inputs. Local production and sales means les pollution. We detail a agro-environmental plan for manure management.
Animal welfare impact: animals can express their natural behaviors. They have lots of space and live in a fitting environment.
Impact on climate change: more carbon sequestration because of intensively rotated pastures.
Social impact: no hidden costs that have to be carried by society or future generations. Honest relationships with suppliers and employees. Family farm.
Impact on consumer health: more omega-3, more CLAs. No antibiotics. No hormones. No synthetic pesticides. (We use some organic bio-pesticides on our veggies.)
Welcome to Ferme d'ORée Farm
The ferme d’Orée is a small family farm in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. We produce and sell grass-fed beef, pastured pork, lamb and eggs, unpasteurized honey and organic fruits and vegetables directly to the consumer and through specialized butchers.
Our mission is to produce great food, that heals the planet and its people, one bite at a time.
We sure have come a long way since we produced our first pastured pork in 2002 and over time we have developped a unique expertise in sustainable agriculture.
Since we sell directly to the consumer, we have to do some marketing. We want to do so without naivity and negativity towards other professional farmers, and without using fear to convince you to buy our products.
We just want to produce great, sustainable food, and we just want you to enjoy it with your friends and family.
Frankly, good, wholesome food does not need a story. You will taste the difference.

Did you know that...
... the d’ORée farm started as a dream in 2000, somewhere between Nepal
and Mexico; A dream that sprang from a desire to live an honest life in
harmony with nature and a desire to cultivate the soil while nurturing
relationships with family and community.
... l'ORée means (forest) edge. Forest edges attract the greatest
ecological diversity. We hope that our farm can also function as a
cultural edge and attract people from country and city alike.
