Meet the Rochon Garden Team
Ann Marie and I are following in my parents and grandparents footsteps, by ushering Rochon Garden into a new era. I oversee the crops and the day-to-day operations of the farm. I want to ensure the farm remains a staple in the Ottawa community for years to come.

Jon and I are working together to usher the farm into a new era. I run the day-to-day business operations of the farm, I can be found at one of our farmers market stands in Ottawa.
I have been growing fruits and vegetables farming since I was a young boy, learning the trade from my father. Today, I coordinate the seeding, planting and ensure that our fruits and vegetables get the right amount of nutrition. I'm also passing my knowledge onto the next generation as Jon and Ann Marie usher the farm into a new era.
I have been involved in farming from a young age when Gerry and I first met. I coordinate all the potted flower combinations with assorted colors and varieties to fascinate any enthusiast. Like Gerry, I'm passing my knowledge of running a farm onto the new generation.
I make sure the farm equipment is running in top shape, it's critical to have good working equipment. You can always find me fixing something or inventing a new piece of equipment to help the farm run more efficiently. When I'm not at the farm, I can be found at one of our farmers market stands in Ottawa.
From a very young age, I've been involved in the farm. Usually helping my Aunt Diane at the Byward Market stand. Today, I run our CSA program and can be found at our farmers market stands around Ottawa.
I grew up right next to the farm and as a kid, helped my grandfather out in the fields from time to time. Today, I help run our CSA program and can be found on location and at farmers markets across Ottawa
With my little yellow wagon in tow, I check to make sure the greenhouses and fields are in check and crops are growing. I help with day to day tasks around the farm.
