“Farming is an entrepreneurial journey.”
- André Ouimet, owner

Popsilos mural: Farm Boy by Emmanuel Jarus and Zek One. Theme: Youth.

Emmanuel Jarus and Zek One chose to represent youth in the context of the farming community. The young farmer looks towards the sky with confidence, a symbol of hope and ambition for the future. The pitchfork held by the young farmer connects today’s young farmer with the past and is a nod to the farm owners, it being a generational farm. The merger of realism and graffiti art in one piece is an evocative way of representing evolving times, beliefs and ways for a progressive future.

True to the roots

Everytime we drive up the Ouimet Farms Adventure lot, we can see the tractor working away in the field and we await its arrival. We’re greeted with a warm smile. And a happy dog.

André took on his Dad’s farm. He even showed us a picture of his dad looking into the horizon, standing on his farmland. The respect he has for good hard work is palpable. He’s a man of many projects. His most recent venture has him renovating his barn to incorporate what could be a local farmers’ market. He explains he’s encountering a few challenges, but I get the feeling that he’s not at all fazed. He’ll find a way. At least, that’s the look I think I understand in his eyes.

Ouimet Farms Adventure offers a corn maze, blow-up structures for kids, a snack shack. Lots of fun and games. Field crops are what he focuses on nowadays on the agri front.

The Popsilos project combines art and agrifood tourism in a circuit that leads to five giant murals celebrating Canada’s 150th on farm silos in the Prescott-Russell countryside, interlacing small producers where visitors can discover local produce and other products.
