La Ferme Anse au Sable
In 1980 we bought an abandoned property on Perrot Island. We did a lot of work to bring the land back into production. The previous owners had destroyed the beautiful hawthorns, willows and aspens; the rotten remains of the old barbed wire fences that surrounded the land were mere posts; and the half-collapsed barns needed to be removed. It was a miserable beginning!! But looking now at this splendor, one wonders: “How could someone have abandoned these magnificent fertile lands?”
Today, it produces grains and a variety of fruits and vegetables. On the farm, there’s also a magnificent orchard of 1000 apple trees producing many varieties. If this land gives us its treasures again, it’s thanks to all the workers who have come here to lend their strong hands to regain its productivity!
