“It’s important to listen to the earth, to understand its language to better take care of it for the future.”
- Jeannette Mongeon, owner

Proud promoters of agriculture

As soon as we met Michel and Jeannette, we knew we’d have a good time. Their farm is full of treasures. Be it antiques, trinkets, green house projects, a pool table, a fire pit. All things that get you thinking of which projects you would set out to do should you be lucky to spend a day on the farm.

Once a dairy farm, a poultry farm, a producer of field crops and for the past six years, a rabbitry: imagine 2000 rabbits! They also have a bee yard and make their own honey. And, on top of that, add five kids. Board games and the Neighbourhood Watch keep the whole family busy! Michel and Jeannette are passionate about educating the local population, especially youth, on the importance of agriculture. They both sit on policy committees and association groups, moulding an informed and positive succession.

Artists Lacey Jane and Layla Folkmann will be painting a mural themed Hope for unity at the Michel Dignard and Jeannette Mongeon Farm.

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.
