Lacolle, Hemmingford

Verger aux hirondelles

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

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

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.

This place buzzes with activity. Apple picking, tractor rides, hiking, petting zoo, games and picnic area delight visitors. At the stand, we sell soups, pies, maple products, and more. Live country band every weekend.

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.
