Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean

FromagerieFromagerie

A story of 6 generations.

The fromagerie owes its name to Médard, son of Élise Boulianne and Eucher Côté, a veritable legend in the agricultural history of the region.

The story begins in the 19th century when Élise takes possession of 100 acres of public land à Saint-Gédéon, Lac-Saint-Jean, given by the authorities who were able to give land to mothers and fathers of twelve or more living children. The objective: Clear the forest and develop the region. The widow Boulianne and her eldest son led the way.

Norman Côté is the fifth generation of the Côté family and current owner of the  fromagerie. His daughter, Rose-Alice, the cheesemaker, is part of the sixth generation to commit itself to the family enterprise.

Ferme Domaine de la RivièreFerme

Normand Côté and Madeleine Boivin own the farm since 1986. They use only the milk from their herd of Brown Swiss cows for cheese production. From April till October, the cows go out to pasture while during the winter they are fed hay.
