Fromagerie de l'Île-aux-Grues



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.
