Our story

It is to the Gagné family that we owe the incomparable quality of this orchard which has been pampered for 3 generations. From the 200 apple trees planted by Armand Gagné in the 1930s, which were multiplied by Claude Gagné at the turn of the 1960s, then by the sustained efforts of Suzanne Gagné, Quebec’s first woman cidricator, and her husband Gilles Barbeau at the beginning of the years 2000, this family marked the territory of the Valiant by the quality of their products.

Turning now the torch to another family, Cidrerie La Pomme du St-Laurent became the Domaine RITT. The new owners wish to enhance what has been done, while bringing new life, perhaps for several more generations. The little Ritt will know how to say it.
