Located in Chambly, Ferme Guyon is a farmer’s market and garden centre.

This is a place full of life that is a joy to discover for people of all ages!

Take in all the wonderful sights!

Hop over to the butterfly house, where you can admire more than 500 beautiful indigenous and exotic butterflies whirling around. This is a chance to witness the life cycle of butterflies with your own eyes: from eggs to caterpillar to chrysalis to full-fledged butterfly. On September 15 and 16, there will even be a special event as the monarchs fly off toward Mexico. The event will be complete with games, entertainment, makeup stations and even a show. During the butterfly takeoff, visitors have the option of personally setting a butterfly free in exchange for a donation.
