Living off the land in the 21st century

By Cédrik Bertrand, The Review, June 27, 2018

Here’s something we all know: there are many types of farms. While that, in itself, is interesting, what’s even more fascinating is the “why?”.

Why farm this instead of that? Why “living things”? Why “growing things”? Why both?

Is it first and foremost a business; for profit?

Is it a hobby?

For Patrick Lalonde and Eleni Corbeil, the answer is the original one: they farm to live off the land as much as possible.

Lalonde represents the third generation of family members to own the farm, located on a beautiful piece of land near the shores of the Ottawa River, in L’Orignal.
