The Winter Farm

Fostering the development of our food self-sufficiency

Ferme d’Hiver offers producers a turnkey solution that stretches their harvesting season and increases their company’s profitability.

Our goal is to build, through partnership with producers, an agro-industrial network that is able to sustain off-season, local and chemical pesticide free production. To succeed, we are focusing on vertical farming and the integration of our operations into those of local producers. 

 

Off-season production

  • 100% controlled indoor production
  • No reliance on weather conditions
  • Harvest from October to June

Heat Redistribution

  • Heats an adjacent installation up to 4 times its area in size
  • Speeds up energy transition of greenhouses
  • Patented LED lighting system

What is a Winter Farm?

It’s a 100% controlled space where we grow the Fraise d’hiver strawberry. We reproduce sunlight, rain and wind using cutting-edge engineering technology. 

Thanks to perfect weather conditions, there is no need for chemical pesticides. The delicate task of pollination is handled by bumblebees, just as it is in nature!

By focusing on vertical farming, Winter Farm maximizes available growing areas and increases production capacity for growers.

PARTNERSHIP MODEL

Our partnership model draws on your agricultural know-how. We share responsibilities in order to reach a common goal: to produce superior-quality produce year-round. 
Across Quebec, farmers choose to join forces with Winter Farm to produce fruit and vegetables all year round and contribute to our food autonomy.
