Through the richness and finesse of Quebec maple syrup; discover our story
Quebec maple syrup is a 100% natural product. It is recognized for its quality and unique flavor, obtained from Quebec maple sap. Its caramelized taste goes perfectly with sweet and savory dishes. But did you know that the fermentation of maple sap makes it possible to produce fine wines, whether dry, sweet or sparkling?
Located on the Route des Rivières tourist circuit in Saint-Paulin in Mauricie, La ferme du loup was created in 2005 by taking over the maple grove originally belonging to the Boucher family , a hundred years ago.
Having never tapped maple trees before, Patrice relished the dream of exploring the possibilities offered by maple syrup. A wine lover, a first experience of vinification with maple sap opened up new perspectives for the La ferme du loup project. For many years, part of the harvest was used to produce sweet Sével for personal consumption. The artisanal maple wine production permit was obtained in 2020, about fifteen years later.
Inspired by the reinterpretation of Nordic cuisine and the promotion of non-timber forest products, the Ferme du loup, with Clara in mind, has given itself the mission of highlighting the Quebec terroir to offer its customers a culinary experience that goes beyond the traditional use of maple syrup.
In 2017 and 2018, the company won a silver medal, a bronze medal in 2019 and a gold medal in 2021 at the La grande save de la commanderie de l'érable competition, whose mission is to make known to the public exceptional maple syrups.
2023 represents a turning point in the history of the Ferme du loup, which opens its doors to visitors with a confidential tasting room (visits by appointment) and a new brand image, created by Paprika , and which will be unveiled shortly.
La ferme du loup thanks the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of Quebec.
