Farm Patry, a family history ...
The sugaring season !
Very young Jean-Pierre Patry accompanied his father and grandfather to the sugar shack located at the Patry farm. It is from those moments that Jean-Pierre has developed a passion for the production of maple syrup. This led him to develop a wide range of products derived from his home made maple syrup. In 1960, Jean-Pierre boiled the sap with a Jutras brand evaporator which his grandfather owned. Then in 1964 he bought a larger evaporator, a Dominion Grimm brand and used it until 1978, the year he obtained the current Waterloo brand oil heated evaporator with dimensions of 6 feet by 12 feet. Before 1978, he tapped 1200 maples to the boiler. In 1978, with the help of his two son, Alain and Daniel, we have installed a collection system of tubing increasing the number of taps to 5000.
Ha, strawberries and raspberries !
In 1960, Jean-Pierre bought a small dairy farm owned by his mother. It is early spring 1963 Jean-Pierre and his wife Jeannine start a new project: the production of strawberries. That year, they transplanted seedlings of 1000 Redcoat. Over the years, they have increased the number of acres in order to meet the ever increasing demand. To satisfy customers, they have tried several strawberry varieties. For several years, customers bought baskets of strawberries already picked. It was during the 70s that picking strawberries and raspberries grew. Today the majority of the production of strawberries and raspberries has converted to the "pick your own". The current field size is approximately 15 acres of strawberries and 10 acres of raspberries. In 2013, Patry Farm continues to welcome people from here and elsewhere and invite them to spend pleasurable moments at their farm.
And the story continues...
In 2014, his son Daniel, who takes over. This passion was transmitted to him by his father Jean-Pierre. With his wife and children, it will ensure the continuity of the family farm. It is with great pleasure that they will serve, season after season, for générations.
