Urban Gardeners to Organic Farmers

Long-time friends and partners, Annie McLaughlin and Konstantinos Hirtle-Kattou, began their farming careers back in 2014 when they founded BioCyclette Montreal . What started off as an initiative to help neighbours grow food in their yards using bicycle transportation, quickly escalated to a successful gardening service as well as the creation of three profitable market gardens.

In 2014 we were selling our crops through the NDG Food Bank as well as directly to neighbours in the form of markets. In 2015 Konstantinos managed Ferme Zephyr, the first organic farm on the island and was exposed to various elements of high quality vegetable production.

2016 marked the creation of Ferme de L'Ile as we expanded our markets, customer base and (as expected), line of credit. With the hard work put in this year and for years to come we have purchased two tractors, three greenhouses and have signed a five year lease to continue our production on Morgan land. We will always stick to our values of making our produce accessible to the community but are shifting our efforts towards restaurant orders as it offers stability to our production.
