Anse au Sable Farm was founded in 1980 by an "illuminated" student from MacDonald College!
In Notre-Dame de l'Île-Perrot, on grounds which had been abandoned for 20 years, the farm is now prosper thanks to the many people who have passed by to give a working hand and thanks to our many faithful customers.
Between the Oka Abbaye and the lake of two mountains, in the middle of the peaceful and bucolic landscape of the region, l'Antre-Pots creates unique hand-crafted potteries from terra-cotta. The flower pots and kitchen potteries are undeniably inspired from southern France where I grew up as a child.
This red clay, cooked at extremely high temperature, gives our pieces a resistant quality. We make decorative pots, garden fountains, pie plates, terrines, pitchers, vases and many other kitchen potteries. Nothing beats a meal delicately simmered in terra-cotta for cooking in a deliciously natural way !
Chez Joly Farm has a diversified production of crops grown on four acres of land. Certified organic with Quebec Vrai since 2006, the enterprise is also member of Équiterre and has been distributing organic baskets to its members for 5 years now.
It is with enthusiasm and much love that we exploit our maple syrup enterprise which is situated in Ste-Marthe, south of Rigaud Moutain. We are the third generation to exploit this forest for the production of maple syrup. The enterprise is therefore over 70 years old and represents a family patrimony we are extremely proud of. In 2000, our first place in the provincial, national and international contest for the best maple products has won us theTitre du Grand Maître Sucrier International. This honorable title given by the Minister of Food and Agriculture was attributed to us for the high quality of our products.
For the excellence of the presentation of our Maple Products, we have merited the prize for the Collection d'excellence, given by Citadelle, a cooperative of maple producers. Always with the highest quality standards, we harvest maple water from 16 000 trees. Our enterprise specializes in maple syrup production, but we also transform this « yellow gold » into a large variety of delicious maple products. We invite you to discover them and experience the unique taste for yourself!
The commercialisation of Papa Dino products all began with a dream we had in 2004 to sell our home-made salsa in health food stores. Because making transformations and preserves during the winter time was very expensive with out of season fruits and vegetables, and because it was difficult to know the origins of the ingredients we bought, the idea was spurred to grown our own products for transforming. In 2008, we found a jewel of a farm, which came with a greenhouse, and that was the beginning of Fournier et Roy. Our farm is not certified organic, but all of our products are cultivated without pesticides or chemical products- that is a priority for us. We have opened a small shop on the site of the farm in 2009. We sell fresh, season vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, potatoes, carots and more. We also have transformed products and preserves: fresh brushcetta, salsa, fruit ketchup and green ketchup, tomato sauces, elderberry or hot pepper jellies, cakes and pies. We also make ready-to-eat meals such as chicken pie, meat pie, different types of lasagna and during the holiday season, our famous ci-pie.
We started our small 3 acre family farm in 2006, situated on the shore of the historic Rigaud River. Though we are not certified organic, we abide to all organic principles according to the Canadian Standards. We take pride in growing healthy vegetables and offer only our best quality at local farmers' markets.
A friendly family enterprise, Quinn Farm especially produces asparagus, strawberries, corn, blueberries, raspberries, apples, pumpkins, squash and Christmas trees. Also made directly at the farm are transformed products such as jams and jellies, marinades, relish and ketchup. We also offer fresh bakery products such as muffins and pies, and frozen products such as fruits and purees.
The farm was established at Notre-Dame-de-l'Île-Perrot in 1982 by the Quinn family. Today, our customers can also visit us at the farm with the whole family - we welcome you to our fields for "pick-your-own" fruits, trailer rides, an animal farm, a maze for children, and to our farm to find gift baskets and other pedagogical activities.

Plumes des Champs is an enterprise that was created in 2007 with the objective of raising guinea fowl in a natural environment in Rigaud. This non-domesticated bird is member of the fowl and partridge species, hence its particular taste of poultry, which is very prized by connoisseurs. Our guinea fowl are given natural feed composed of hay, insects and a complement of pure, natural grain. This type of food produces meat which has an incomparable taste, doubled by an excellent nutritious value. Our birds are raised within 100 times more space than conventional poultry, raised in large scale industrial farms.
Our birds are raised freely and in natural fields and produce meat which holds half the amount of fat than the same type of bird, when raised in a chicken coop, and 5 times less fat than chicken found in grocery stores. The percentage of protein contained in the meat is also 75% higher. Our birds are raised without any antibiotics, antifungal additives, medicine, and growth hormones, and without animal fat or flour added to the feed. This formula results in a particularly savory meat, with a refined and healthy taste.
In the high and hostile plateaus of the Western-Montérégie, populated with ancestral fruit trees and carnivore goats, one can find one of the oldest cheese factories of our "Belle Province": the Ruban Bleu cheese factory.
With only 4 hours of walk from the Lachine rapids, you can make it easily and get mostly cheeses, goat meat and other snacks from the county. Everything you need to fill your pantries and be certain to not die of scurvy in the long winter months. During the warm season and since we finished building our new trailer, we load our gear and travel to public markets at the four points of the metropole and sometimes even manage as far as the loyalist townships.
You can take it for granted that our cheeses, when well-accompanied by a glass of white wine as they should, are hardly resistible! We warmly welcome you to experience this original, welcoming and unique rural universe!
