At Fermes Leclair, market gardening is more than a profession; it’s been a genuine passion handed down from one generation to the next since the 1800s. Our farm was officially founded in 1971 by André, Ernest and Maurice Leclair and has been run by Maurice with his children Jocelyn and Diane since 1995. Over the years, grandchildren Benjamin, Gabriel, Nicolas and Rosalie have joined the team, and this generation will eventually take over the business.
Today, our farm extends over some 375 hectares (925 acres) dedicated essentially to vegetable farming in the fertile area of Saint-Patrice-de-Sherrington, in the Montérégie region on Montréal’s South Shore.
Our company follows principles of eco-responsible farming, growing and packaging carrots, radishes, green onions, beets and fine herbs. Every year, we add more fresh vegetables in response to consumer demand and in keeping with our family’s focus on innovation as a core value. A large part of our produce is sold in supermarkets in Québec and other provinces, as well as in the United States.
