Pierre and Lucie Vaillancourt
The Vaillancourt brothers, Adrien and Gerard, purchases land to grow potatoes and also to breed purebred Hereford cattle. At the time, the farm was known as the Ferme Vaillancourt et Frères. The two families of the Vaillancourt brothers jointly participate in taking care of the farm.
Adrien's son, Pierre, and his wife Lucie, then decide to take over the family farm. They produce potatoes, strawberries and have a herd of Hereford cattle. This was the birth of the Ferme Valupierre.
Construction of a packaging plant to package the potatoes in various sizes. From then on, Ferme Valupierre supplied strawberries and potatoes to restaurants, institutions and food chains in Quebec.
The Ferme Valupierre specializes in the production of potatoes.
The company expands by purchasing land on Île d’Orléans.
The farm produces over 15 varieties of potatoes every year including round white potatoes, red potatoes, yellow-fleshed potatoes, red-skinned yellow-fleshed potatoes and the famous fingerling: La Gabrielle de l’Île d’Orléans.
Ferme Valupierre begins transforming certain plots of land to be organic.
Major investments are undertaken to modernize packaging equipment to meet the demand more efficiently and to improve productivity while ensuring high quality standards.
