ACTIVITIES & TASTINGS
Meet the men and women who shape and transform the Québec terroir and make agritourism and food tourism unique ways to tour Québec!
There’s so much to discover and learn about Québec products, that you’ll need to take to the road and make the acquaintance of the farmers and artisans who shape and transform the Québec terroir with such passion. Today there are so many vineyards, wineries, cheese makers, maple groves and sugar shacks, farms, honey producers, micro breweries and more, from which we can fill our larders, and which supply restaurants, specialty grocery stores and terroir boutiques with tasty Québec products. Also deserving mention are the farmers and artisans who process goat’s milk, lavender, emu oil, mohair and alpaca wool into beauty products or fabrics and warm clothing.
Depending on the location selected, visit a Farm Shop, a Farm Exploration or a sugar shack – it’s fun to watch animals up close and feed them, enjoy a sweet snack, sample good wines, ciders, ice ciders, ice wines, local cheeses, or visit a U-pick for strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or apples. In brief, you can plan outings based around food and take advantage of the many products from Québec. Moreover, agritourism is an authentic, original way to tour Québec. When you stop at a Farm Shop, a Farm Exploration or a sugar shack, you’ll be amazed at the diversity of regional products and the originality of the tours and activities offered.
