Arthabaska

The beauty of nature that surrounds us has always had a deep hold over me. I can still remember the first time I got to leave the city of Montreal, a visit to a farm owned by a family member on my fathers side, where I got to milk a cow, bale hay and all the other things you can do on a farm. 
What I liked most about the farm was being surrounded by fields and forests. The sweet odors of everything, the colours of the leaves, The wind and the rain and the sunshine all seemed so different outside the city, so wonderful. All offering their contribution to the scene and doing it with such grace and with such power.
So it was only natural for me to become interested in plants and their "uniqueness", their usefulness and their dangers.
Below you will find products that I have come to learn about over the last fifty years, products from the fields and forests all across the province of Quebec. Some come from the northern regions, but most come from the abundant fields and forests around Rawdon and Victoriaville, where there is a good mix of hardwoods and softwoods.
All of these products offered here have medicinal values so they should be used with the guidance of a professional where possible.
