About Us

Roots and Shoots Farm is a small-scale, organic vegetable farm that works to improve our local food system while inspiring our customers to explore the wonders of seasonal produce. We are located in Ste. Cecile de Masham, close to Wakefield in Quebec.

This year we will provide quality organically-grown food through summer, fall and winter vegetable shares (CSA), at grocery stores in the region, and our booth at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market at Lansdowne Park.

Jess has been farming for her entire life. Driving tractors, plucking chickens, and showing cows were part of a rich, rural childhood that established an appreciation for fresh air, bare feet and close food. 

 

Jess manages all the crop planning, crop rotations and seeding at Roots and Shoots Farm. She also finds time to grow our organic flowers. 

Jessica graduated from St. Stephen’s University in 2008 with a degree in History and Literature.

Robin spent his twenties travelling in Asia and teaching English before finally deciding to return to University to study environmental science.

While at UBC he was forcefully exposed to core agriculture curriculum, which made him realize that food is the main way humanity explores its connection with the natural environment. He got a job on a farm that summer. Two years after that he got his first taste of organic vegetable farming, and has never looked back.

Robin has worked on and managed organic vegetable farms in Montreal, Boston, and Ottawa since 2004. He holds a degree in Sustainable Agriculture from the University of British Columbia.
