Fromage Pied de vent

La Fromagerie du Pied-de-vent



Since 1998, the core of our mission has remained unchanged: to focus on the quality and uniqueness of the products we offer. In the enchanting setting of the Magdalen Islands, you'll enjoy a unique experience. A tour of the dairy farm will introduce you to Canadian cows, whose spectacular arrival on the islands is no mean feat! Tastings, demonstrations and interpretations of various facts about cheese-making and the history of cheese complete this unforgettable encounter with these artisan cheesemakers.

Come and meet the artisans at the ÉCONOMUSÉE® de la Fromagerie du Pied-De-Vent to learn more about the origins of the cheese-making tradition in Quebec and the know-how of today.

Don't leave without tasting the unique Island-flavored cheeses for which the dairy is famous. Pied-De-Vent, Tomme des Demoiselles, Art Senau and Jeune-Coeur are the cheeses you can taste on site or take away. Take advantage of the picturesque landscape for an outdoor stroll or a family picnic.
