Montérégie
Day 1

Lacolle, Hemmingford

Verger aux hirondelles

Add to my planner

This organic farm, certified by Ecocert Canada, produces apples, pears, sour cherries, flowers, garlic, nuts, dried fruit, spreads and cider vinegar. Feel free to walk around or take a guided tour. The view of the surrounding mountains is magnificent!

Cidrerie du Minot

Add to my planner

Anyone familiar with Brittany, France knows that it produces excellent ciders. Well, the owners of Cidrerie du Minot hail from that region, which is a good sign! They are very adept at blending Breton tradition with Québec apples.

Day 2

Hemmingford, Franklin

Domaine des Salamandres

Add to my planner

In 2005, this vineyard suffered a spring frost that destroyed half its vines. But the determined and creative owners planted new vines, along with some pear trees. The result: white, red and ice wine, and a delectable pear ice wine.

Les Vergers Ivanhoë Faille

Add to my planner

These orchards are set on a hillside where visitors can admire the scenery as they enjoy a picnic or stroll along the paths. U-pick blueberries and apples available at the end of July. Nearby is the Entre pierre et terre cider house.

Day 3

Havelock, Hemmingford

Petch Orchards

Add to my planner

Renowned for its fresh-pressed apple juice, this orchard also operates a cider house and distillery, producing ice cider. Enjoy the petting zoo and picnic tables, and pick your own apples, pears, plums and pumpkins in season.
