Welcome to Le Verger de Hudson Bio
WORKING THE LAND WITH TODAY’S KNOWLEDGE
The apple is one the most chemically sprayed fruits harvested in Québec. As apple growers, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to do differently. By planting the orchard from scratch we were able to control all aspects of its development, from enriching the soil to treatments used on the fruit.
We practice Organic Farming. This process of production involves working while respecting nature and achieving a balanced ecosystem. Feeding the soil with natural elements instead of feeding the trees with chemical fertilizers. Increasing the beneficial insect population instead of destroying enemy insects with chemical pesticides. The ultimate goal is to harvest healthy fruit with the freshness and good taste that nature intended it to have.
Bees & Trees
FULL CIRCLE FARMING
What a privilege it is to live among the bees. Their presence in the orchard is crucial and precious. We became beekeepers not only out of a need to pollinate but because the organic orchard can host bees permanently. Without the use of chemical pesticides, our bees thrive and provide full circle farming. Their quest for nectar is only interrupted by the need to remind us that we are on their territory!
Our bees gather pollen and nectar from apple blossoms and dandelions in the spring and clover and wild flowers in the summer. We harvest twice a year, bottling seasonal small batch raw honey, unpasteurized to preserve its natural flavours and virtues. It is honey for flavour lovers.
