“I love growing,” says Gerry Rochon who is following a family tradition by doing just that. Diane echoes the sentiment. “I find it so rewarding seeing tiny seedlings become plants that produce fruit and vegetables.” Eighteen years of that tradition and passion have today become Rochon Garden where Gerry and Diane grow fruits and vegetables on 150 acres of fields and in a dozen greenhouses. It takes a team to nurture, harvest and then prepare the produce for sale, so the Rochon Garden ‘family’ expands to include both local and migrant workers during the summer months. From May until October, Diane and other Rochon Garden staffers are familiar vendors at all the major Ottawa area markets. The Rochons are members of OFA and Eastern Ontario Berry Growers associations.
