An unforgettable country lunch

Look forward to a feast! The Festin des Grâces, held on September 30, 2018 starting at 11 a.m., is a one-of-a-kind gourmet lunch served out in the field on the magnificent grounds of the Fromagerie La Station cheese shop. A big tent will be set up and a parking lot is available for motorists. After your pre-lunch drink and hors d’oeuvres, choose your appetizer, main course and dessert among those prepared by the nine talented featured chefs. Connoisseurs can go for the works by indulging in the platter of regional cheeses and getting advice on wine-and-food pairings from a famous sommelière!

From farm to table

The next best thing to having your own garden or orchard is being able to pick your own fruits and vegetables! Have a relaxing day out in the fields, meet the welcoming farmers and fill your basket with the freshest produce. September is the month when most of the region’s fruits and vegetables are in season!
