This place isn't a cute little farm visit. You purchase all things apple here.

Apple infused caramel, hard cider, sparkling cider with alcohol, apple`shaped bag, cider vinegar with mother.

Part of the Chemin du Terroir, this was a fun place as no one else was there and the sales lady was so pleasant. I had the farm experiences throughout the day, and I just needed to make my purchases and chirstmas purchases and continue on the chemin.

The cider vinegar is good, the sparkling cider is great , and the Dargan or Daragon hard cider was so light and refreshing.

There is a small fee for tasting.

I would go back.

There are other components to this massive point of sales but we went close to closing. Maybe a restaurant and pie factory?

Went here on a field trip with my childs school. I've been to other orchards so I was surprised to see how big this one is.

On arrival, there's a few animals and a park area for children. Its very nice and new.

They reserved tables for us inside ther orchard right near another hidden park area. That was really cool because the kids were able to play in their own secluded park.

To go apple picking, they took us on a tractor ride and dropped us off - we picked apples for about an hour...it was nice but I wish we could have known which apples we were picking. A sign somewhere would have been nice. There were plenty of ladders and lower trees for young children. That was fun.

There's also a store that sells everything from apple cider to apple pies. Most people will probably like it but I thought it felt too commercial. I walked in and thought I was in an SAQ for a second. I was expecting warm, home made apple pie but it was all done in bulk, nothing was warm or fresh-out-of the oven like other orchards I've been to. With that said, I still bought an applie pie ($10) and it was delicious!, the apple juice was also great.

You can eat lunch there, I didnt eat anything but it smelled delicious! I would probably go back on my own with my family but definitely during the day in the middle of the week.

Vergers Lafrance is located in the heart of Montreal's "north shore" farming district in St-Joseph-du-Lac. The property is child-friendly with some animals and a huge playground they can play in. Afterwards, you get onto a tractor trailer that takes you into the orchard to pick your own apples. The place is huge! Best time to come: early September to early October. Labor Day and Thanksgiving weekends are VERY hectic and packed with people, so try to come on another weekend or during the weekday if you don't like big crowds. Plenty of free parking. Must-try is their fresh apple-cinamon donuts. Also, ask for a map of the area and go visit all the other local Cheese makers, bakeries, and wild game growers (like ostrich, lama, bison, etc).
