Verger Lacroix – Apple Picking

A great orchard for apple picking is Verger Lacroix. The orchard is known for its apple cider (fire ciders, ice ciders and sparkling cider), which are sold at the large and nice boutique shop at the orchard with other local produce. The orchard is offering about 11 apple types for self-picking, two big playgrounds, hay to jump on, a tractor ride and a mini farm.

Verger Champêtre & Potager Gauvin​

Rain or Shine, it’s outdoor time. We spent about 3 hours in this wonderful orchard in heavy rain and we loved it. Verger Champetre is offering lots of activities for kids: petting farm, animals (alpacas, ponies, sheep, gooses, deer), playground, shop, an interpretive loop trail and pick your own fruits & veggies (cherries, apples, prunes, pears, pumpkins and even garlic!). Unfortunately, the latter we could not do as the cherry season was over and the apple season did not start yet.

La Ferme du Bassin

On a summer rainy day, we decided to go out although the non-stop showers. We found this nice farm online. This is a family farm with about 29 different animal species and about 1000 animals. The farm has group visits usually twice a day. Call before you go to make sure there are tours on the day of your visit and to confirm the exact time of the group visit.
