Verger

The Orchard

Orchard story and mission

 Le Verger Labonté was established in 1989 by Claude and Diane Labonte. About 2,000 trees were planted including ten varieties of apples and a few pears. Each year, several varieties of pumpkins and decorative squashes are planted for self collection. Over the years, several home products have been developed including dry jelly, syrup and apple butter, as well as pies, tarts and our famous fresh of the day muffins.

In 2003 Nathalie Gervais becomes the owner. The quality of the apples, muffins and good friendly service remain a priority. In 2005, the idea of ​​a maze in a cornfield was born, and it is in 2006 that a theme and a fundraiser associated with this great activity came to life! It is now a passion to create mazes, learn about other cultures and contribute to humanitarian projects!

From 2011 to 2012 new facilities are emerging  at Le Verger Labonté in order to allow a better welcome to our customers.  New offices and larger kitchens are built to allow  a greater production of processed products.

The company is now well known for its pick your own apples and pumpkins on weekends or groups during the week, our delicious apple muffins and other home products, the pleasure of discovery in our corn mazes and for the warm welcome offered by our dynamic team full of « bonté » (easy with such a name!)
