At the heart of the St-Lawrence River...
As early as in 1900, the know-how of making artisan aged cheddar was passed on to the youths of the island.
It's only in 2000 that the production of fine cheese begins.
Fromagerie de l'Île-aux-Grues took its name from the island and the archipelago where it's located. A 9 km long island along the St-Lawrence River, 75 km east of Quebec City.
The entire milk production goes to cheese making.
The fromagerie milk supply comes from the three dairy farms located on the island, a unique terroir swept by the salty winds of the river.
The farms are : Lilogru, Densy and Painchaud.
