A Day of Agrotourism in Quebec City

Food / quebec / Aug 9, 2019

If you are the kind of person who is always a little hungry, agrotourism is a simply perfect for you.

Agrotourism is when local producers open their doors to visitors to introduce them to their work by offering guided tours of the facilities, tastings or simply selling their products. It’s when the meaning of the trip is to taste terroir products as well as to discover the agricultural savoir-faire of our producers.

The greater region of Quebec City is ideal for agrotourism.

Fall is the perfect time to go picking your own fruits and vegetables. Apple, squash, pear, pumpkin, plum: you will find everything near Quebec City.

In Levis, Genest Farm is always very popular for apple and pumpkin picking.

To pick your own squash, we suggest Bédard and Blouin farm in Quebec City.

In September, you can pick raspberries, pears and plums at the R. Giguère farm on Île d'Orléans.

While you are on the island, take the opportunity to make a small gourmet trip. A mandatory stop is the Domaine Cassis Monna & Filles, where you can taste their homemade spirits, but also their famous soft vanilla and blackcurrant ice cream. A real treat!

Still hungry? Stop at La roulotte du coin for a poutine with black garlic or at La panache mobile for a lobster roll. Before leaving the island, make a stop at the chocolate factory of Île d'Orléans.

Back in Quebec City, opt on a guided microbrewery tour with Broue-Tours. Finish this delicious journey with a stop at the distillery Stadaconé, in Limoilou, to taste their famous blue gin.
