- Overview of the region -

A FERTILE REGION
FOR TERROIR VINEYARDS

Brome-Missisquoi boasts an unusual agricultural heritage based on several cultural inheritances typical of the Eastern Townships. Agriculture is predominant in the west where the soil is very rich. The central region provides great potential for growing fruit while, in the east, large forests and mountains make up the countryside.

The region is well known for its wine-growers and its orchards that benefit from well-drained slopes that are exposed to the sun. Some 25 wine-growers have settled there, making Brome-Missisquoi the leading wine-growing region in Quebec.

In addition to traditional crops, the area’s terroirs and specific climactic conditions have helped develop unique emerging products, like ice cider. And the potential for sugar maple cultivation
is extensive to meet the demand in maple syrup and maple water that is bottled and distributed throughout the world.

Large businesses, like Bonduelle (Arctic Gardens) and Canards du Lac Brome, have also located in the region, the latter 100 years ago. This business processes more than 2 million Peking ducks a year.
