Did you know that Brome-Missisquoi is the region with the most agritourism enterprises in Quebec? You’ll need several weeks to savour all that is produced here, but if you just have a few days, here is one itinerary that will allow you to discover a good sampling of everything our region has to offer.
We’ll start our outing in Farnham to taste the cheeses produced by the Fromagerie des Cantons with, among others, its Zéphyr and El Nino. You’ll note that the cheese shop is right next door to Farnham Ale + Lager.
If it’s Saturday, don’t miss going to the Marché de la station gourmande for the ambiance and to fill your shopping bags.
Then, head out to Bedford to visit the Fromagerie Missiska cheese factory which produces cheeses using the milk of their farm’s Jersey cows.
For supper, we suggest you try the Table fermière at the Brasserie Dunham where their seasonal cuisine showcases local products and savour the world-renowned Brasserie Dunham beers while you’re here.
After you’ve enjoyed breakfast at L’Épicerie Café de Dunham, take the route that leads to Frelighsburg. On your way, you can stop and taste the wines produced by the Val Caudalies vineyard. While you’re in the village of Frelighsburg, take some time to enjoy a piece of the famous maple syrup pie of Sucreries de l’érable and the Fumoir Gosselin smoked salmon.
Then follow Richford Road to Sutton. On your way, stop at Clos Saragnat, where you’ll savour the products made by the pioneer of viticulture in Quebec and the inventor of ice cider, Christian Barthomeuf.
When you arrive in Sutton, relax and have supper in one of the two village microbreweries.
In the morning you’ll find many gourmet delights in the village of Sutton. We suggest a Sunday brunch at Auberge Le Pleasant or at Le Cafetier. We also suggest you try the delicious wood oven baked bagels prepared by Round Top Bagels.
Before leaving town, you must make a stop at Rumeur Affamée to purchase some regional products and to taste Atelier Caramel’s renowned pastries.
Your next stop will be at the very impressive Vignoble du Ruisseau located between Sutton and Dunham. Don’t forget to reserve a guided tour of the site.
End your tour with a treat by stopping at the nearby Les Trois Acres honey house.
