The harvests supplied food to the Saint-Claude Mission, logging camps and settlers in the area, ensuring the survival of pioneers and many horses. The Indigenous people played a role in uprooting, plowing, seeding and harvesting. Agriculture slowly gained momentum as a way to feed the people and animals and, later, surpluses were sold to logging companies.
Today, there are several dairies, beef and bison farms in our area. The rich soil allows for extensive wheat, oat, canola and soybean farming. Haskaps are a new crop at Verger du Terroir.
