We stopped here as a side trip on our way home in NH from Quebec City. Beautiful countryside, wonderful cheeses, great sandwiches! The woman behind the counter was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Our French is terrible and she was kind enough to explain everything in perfect English for us. So many delicious other locally-made goodies in the store. This last... More

Yum! That sums up the cheese here in a word. We stopped here out of curiosity and were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness we encountered and delicious samples. We ended up buying cheese... and more cheese. Be sure to stop and see their storage area -- your next wheel of cheese is probably aging in there!

We were travelling in the surrounding rolling hills of Compton when we came upon this place. The cheeses are out of this world. No wonder they win prizes. They also offer other regional products for sale. Pleasant and helpful people.

We stopped here on our "mini food tour" in this area. The young woman presenting the tastings said she knew very little English however she did a wonderful job describing each of the chesses we were tasting! They make all of their cheese on site and have a very impressive "cheese cave" that you can go and take a look... More

Wow! So good cheese. You can also buy fine products, all from the region. And you can taste before buy. You must go there if you go around Compton. Psst... bring a cooler.

Delicious cheese of various kinds, tasty samples to try and many other delicacies made in the area. It was fun watching the cheese blocks being lifted out of the vat. It is small but good for a visit along with many other places in and around Compton.

My partner and I stumbled upon Fromagerie La Station while we were driving around the area, and overall, it's a good quick place for some cheese and a bite to eat. This creamery is apparently on a kind of heritage trail of farm goods throughout Quebec. We tried a good number of cheese here, and they were quite delicious. We... More

We were in the Coaticook region and wanted one more side trip. These cheese makers were listed in the local tourist guide. Our 3 children had no interest in going but we went anyway. The very helpful young lady at the store gave us samples of their four cheeses and we settled on the two most robust: Alfred Le Fermier... More
