” Soil in my hands makes me smile! “
I just can remember how old I was when I removed my first stone from the field to make it better.
Since I am a child, nature was and still is my world, I have air from Compton in my lungs and blood from Beauce in my veins.. I walk my land to give a message, take care, take good care of the land. Working on the land is my great passion.
I farm the land and produce the maple syrup.
Pierre Bolduc, President
” If someone had forbidden me to create cheese , I would have done it anyway. “
It was love at first sight between me and cheese. To transform,to modify it is a second nature to me. The power to create is my great motivation .
I take care of the cheese factory and I make cheese.

” Forest teaches me lessons even when I am not listening. “
When I was a child, I climbed trees to see far away,that is why today I have a broader vision on things.After experiencing many sides of agriculture, I finally understand that the nature, forest, outdoor were my answers.
I take care of the asparagus-growing and the maple grove.

” I didn’t have to become a farmer I was already one. ”
I started agriculture before my parents allowed it.
I was born to work on agriculture.
I never questionned my taste to work on the farm.
Agriculture and I are one.
I take care of the farm.
