The municipality of Sainte-Sabine is located in the St. Lawrence Plain northwest of Brome-Missisquoi between Farnham, Cowansville and Bedford. Characterized by a relatively flat and homogeneous terrain, it is located in the watershed of Missisquoi Bay except for a small portion that is part of the watershed of the Yamaska River.
Thanks to the quality of soil most of the land is devoted to agriculture. On part of the rich, black earth west of the village, carrots, onions and other vegetables are cultivated. Milk production is added to municipal resources.
The first settlers arrived in 1888 and in1921 the parish became the Municipality of Sainte-Sabine. The proximity of urban centers and the arrival of young families explain the significant growth of its population which now numbers 1,150 people.
