Potatoes, strawberries, apples, vines, berries... Farming is this fertile island’s main resource.
A lot of rain, many lakes and watercourses, flat terrain and moderate temperatures almost year-round…are the ideal conditions for successful crop growing.
The land bordering the St. Lawrence River has all of these characteristics!
Flattened by the last glaciation, it was then covered by water. When this water retreated, it left behind a layer of rich soil that is excellent for farming.
