From the earth to your plate, the owners of this family-run cheese factory are involved in every step of the production of their award-winning organic farmhouse cheeses.
Located in the Eastern Townships, Fromagerie La Station is part of the tradition of this region, which is considered the cradle of Québec cheese production. Owned by the Bolduc-Routhier family, each member of the family, the parents and their three sons, is involved in the business. The family follows in the footsteps of Alfred Bolduc, who first established the business in 1928 when he acquired the land where the maple grove, the farm and the cheese factory are located today.
La Station is known for its deep commitment to the land, to the well-being of its animals, to farming practices that respect the environment and the rhythm of nature, and to the love of a job well done. Its farm cheese, made from the milk of its own dairy cows is certified organic and reflects the flavours of the region.
In the rolling countryside of Compton, explore a bucolic outdoor interpretive trail. Inside, reception areas, a mezzanine for observing the cheese ripening rooms, multimedia installations, an immersive multisensory experience in a cheese aging room and a "farm scent organ" will introduce you to the daily activities of this passionate family of artisans.
La Station offers five unpasteurized organic cow’s milk cheeses with several having won awards in regional, provincial, national and international competitions. These awards are indicative of the richness and quality of this company’s level of skill and know-how. From its firm and semi-firm cheeses to its famous traditional and peppered raclettes, each has its own personality where one can actually taste the flowers, herbs and pasture aromas that differentiate one from the other.
