Canada’s Agriculture Day is February 13, 2018

canada's agriculture day

Canada’s Agriculture Day is a time to showcase all of the amazing things happening in our industry and create a closer connection with consumers about where their food comes from and the people who produce it.

Marie-Pierre Dubeau and Sébastien Grandmont made the choice of agriculture when they decide to become the family succession of Le Petit Mas, an agribusiness specializing in growing organic garlic. Since then, their proud of being organic garlic producers grow each day. This is what they would like to share with you today :

” We are proud to be part of a major economic industry, because more than 2 million Canadians work in agriculture. Le Petit Mas employs more than 50 people in high season.

We are proud to be part of the 97% of Canadian family-owned farm.

We are proud to protect the environment, we grow organic garlic in Quebec for 25 years.

We are proud to be innovative, as we are both farmers with university background. Also, our fermented garlic scape is a unique Canadian product.

We are proud to offer quality Canadian garlic.Canada ranks number one in global food safety. Since 2017, it is now possible to track down our garlic from our field to our points of sales because we implement a traceability system to get the Canada Gap certification.

We are proud to work in an agriculture business. Agriculture is not only work, it’s a lifestyle. A lifestyle where kids play in mud, where days end at sunset (or after…) and where we have the satisfaction to be part of a better world a bite at a time.

We are proud to contribute to the development of the agriculture business while eating Canadian food. Try these recipes that showcase produce of the Eastern Townships and be proud to be part of the agriculture success! ”

Varieties grown at Le Petit Mas

Since 1989, we have been growing the Music cultivar, known for its large, strong, juicy and spicy cloves, its excellent shelf-life (8 to 12 months) and exceptional resistance to cold and diseases.

In 2012, we received a sample of the Glazed Purple Stripe cultivar from a market gardener. Last year, we began selling this garlic at our online store. Glazed Purple Stripe is a rich and mild garlic. Each bulb has about 10 flat, bronze cloves and a medium shelf-life (6 to 8 months).

To find out more, go to our Varieties and Groups of Garlic in Quebec page.

Grade 2 garlic (irregular, second quality, unappealing…)

At Le Petit Mas, we carefully sort our Quebec-grown garlic and offer only high-quality garlic (Grade 1) to supermarkets.

In order to eliminate food waste, we sell our irregular garlic (Grade 2) through our online store, at food fairs and within the HRI network. In terms of taste, Grade 1 garlic and Grade 2 garlic are equivalent. As for the shelf-life, Grade 1 garlic keeps for longer (8 to 12 months) than Grade 2 garlic (3 to 6 months).
