There is no better place to discover the fruits and veggies of Québec’s growing season than at the Anse aux Sables farm in Île Perrot. Pick your own strawberries in summer, then come back for apples in the fall. Many favourite varieties grow in this 1000-tree orchard, including Gala, Cortland, Honeycrisp, and Empire. The farm is also a stellar producer of berries, squash, greens, melons, and peppers. And don’t forget that late summer favourite: delicious sweet corn! The Anse aux Sables farm will prove to visitors that hard work and a love for the land leads to great produce. A visit to the farm will also make it a breeze to get your 5-10 a day! Pick your own or visit the farm stand, where you will also find home-made specialties such as apple juice, strawberry jam, and fruit pies.

Make visiting Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot’s Verger Labonté a fall tradition. In high season, the orchard is full of families and groups finding the perfect Halloween pumpkin and picking bushels of rosy red and bright gold apples before trying out one of the orchard’s famous corn mazes. Visiting the orchard is a fun and educational activity for school and daycare groups and, on weekends, a great way for families with young children to get out of the city. Enjoy fresh apples and homemade goodies, like the orchard’s famous apple muffins, jellies, syrup, apple butter, pies and tarts; the farm also produces plums, pears, and a variety of squashes. Le P’tit Bistro is a farm-to-table experience open to guests Saturdays and Sundays, made with products from the farm; this includes their grain-fed free-range turkeys and chickens, raised without hormones or antibiotics.

Let historical experts guide you through a moment in Canada’s history, when men and women did everything by hand. The Pointe-du-Moulin Park boasts one of only two working mills still left in the province of Québec. The mill and the nearby miller’s house have been standing since 1708 and 1787 respectively! The park is dedicated to preserving the integrity of the site while making it a fun place to learn about local history. This mill was used for centuries by farmers from Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot, L’Île-Perrot, Pincourt and Terrasse-Vaudreuil, and thus is one of the founding aspects of the region’s long and proud agricultural heritage. In summer, listen to stories, meet pirates, go fishing, camp under the stars, dine and dance; there is no end to the entertaining fundraising events put on at the park, which also hosts events for Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot. The site also has facilities available for weddings, conferences and meetings, and hosts school and other groups for interpretive tours. Members get great rates and perks, so consider signing up to support this vibrant heritage site!
