This is what drives us at Ferme Butte & Bine Farm. What brought us to establish our new farmstay, market garden and bakery near Cornwall, in the quaint historical town of Williamstown, Ontario. Here, we dream of serving our community through nutritious and organically-grown vegetables, authentic organic sourdough bakery products & a refreshing farmstay. Come, stay for a while! Nous avons hâte de vous rencontrer et de partager nos passions avec vous et vos familles.
Emeric and Sylviane met by chance at The Roxy on Granville Street, in Vancouver, BC in January 2010, when Emeric was in Canada on a working-holiday visa and Sylviane was on a 1-year coop working as a translator for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. The rest, as they say, is history! The couple has travelled across the globe, lived in London, UK, in Ottawa, ON, and in Vancouver, BC before settling down in Williamstown, ON with their two children, Nathaël and Mélodie.
Emeric grew up on the rugged Corsican coastline of Ajaccio, France and Sylviane, on a quaint hobby farm in Sarsfield, ON. Add a decade of living in beautiful British Columbia, and nature was forever engrained in their lifestyle. Vancouver also exposed them to organic, sustainable and small-scale agriculture. This is where Emeric volunteered at Farmer’s on 57th, an organic urban CSA farm, and where their love affair with gardening and using fresh, nourishing, and organic produce to feed their family started. Emeric completed his permaculture diploma and the family spent many weekends visiting inspiring farms on Vancouver Island, the BC and US Gulf Islands and Washington State before choosing to come settle closer to family. They still dream of one day spending half the year on Salt Spring Island, but all in due time…
Nathalie, Emeric’s mother, is also the “force tranquille” helping to keep the weeds at bay and the kids out of the way. She’s become a key player on the farm team and things would definitely not be running as smoothly without her!
Au plaisir de vous rencontrer!
