About the farm
Hone your skills with experienced farmers on a well-managed, draft horse-powered organic farm. Ferme Lève-tôt is a certified organic vegetable farm located in Quebec’s Outaouais region in operation since 2010. Our mission is to produce high quality certified organic vegetables using environmentally and socially sustainable methods. We manage a 150-share CSA program and attend a busy local farmer’s market. Since 2015 we’ve worked with a team of draft horses and currently use a combination of mechanical, draft- and human-powered cultivation techniques on a terrain of 5 acres of field and 3 greenhouses.
Our summer team of 4 employees works under the direction of the owners, Richard and Charlotte, who are actively involved in the daily operation of the farm. Employees are encouraged to take on specific roles while also contributing to all aspects of farm work throughout the season. We value initiative, personal responsibility, teamwork, and positive energy.
