About the farm

As part of the Roulant’s mission of building a food system that is healthy, just, and sustainable, the Ferme du Roulant farms a 3-acre plot of agriculturally zoned and organically certified land in Senneville. The farm was co-founded in 2012 by Santropol Roulant and Howard Reitman. It can be found on the western tip of the Island of Montreal.

This land supports the production of fresh produce for our kitchen program and contributes to making organic produce accessible to all, regardless of socio-economic status, level of mobility, or degree of autonomy.

In addition to supplying the Meals-on-Wheels kitchen, we now sell our vegetables to neighbouring hospitals, local schools, and other organizations working in the area of food security. With Les Jardins Carya and D3Pierres, the Roulant farm joined the project Système alimentaire local et intégré à Montréal (SALIM), founded by the Collectif Récolte, in order to collectively offer and coordinate the distribution of organic local produce across Montreal. This collective distribution model is an opportunity for the Roulant to make its production accessible to more diverse populations and to contribute to social change through food.

The farm also plays an important role in training the next generation of farmers. Every summer, we hire passionate young farmers. We also educate Montrealers on the importance of organic and local agriculture through our events like the Community Farm Day.
