La Grande Ferme was founded in 1667 by Monsignor François de Laval. The farm bears witness to an extraordinary agricultural history, and is one of the heritage treasures of the Côte-de-Beaupré region. For the past 30 years, the site has been operated as an interpretation center. From the outset, La Grande Ferme heritage center made it its core mission to raise visitor awareness about the rich historical, archeological, and natural heritage of Saint-Joachim and Cap Tourmente.
Given the current situation, there are no events planned for the short term. We are keeping a close eye on developments and are following all the government regulations. We are ready to adapt as needed. In the meantime, visit us on social media to catch up on the latest news!
