He is the founder, with his wife Maude-Hélène Desroches, of Les Jardins de la Grelinette, an internationally recognized 10-acre micro-farm in Quebec, Canada. With only 1½ acres cultivated in permanent beds, the farm grosses more than 100 000$ per acre with operating margins of about 60 per cent, enough to financially sustain his family. The focus at La Grelinette has been to grow better, not bigger, in order to optimize the cropping system, making it more lucrative and viable in the process.
