Taste of Pontiac: Maple Syrup from Muddy Hands Winery

Catégories: 

Spring is officially here, and the sap has started flowing!

Maple Syrup is available at Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, located at 1965 Route 148 -- at the two lanes in Luskville.

Watch for our signs on the 148.

$11 for 1/2 Litre
$20 for 1 Litre.

Guaranteed to be free of any contaminents, and completely lead free -- which is commonly present in most "backyard" maple productions. 

Government tested and inspected.

This year, we've extended our Maple syrup production significantly -- partnering with a local company that boils off the sap and packages it for us with all the necessary (and legal) nutritional information.

As always, our products are of high quality.  

Who are we?

The name of our farm, Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, is named from the simple belief that amazing things come with passion, love, and hard work(tm).  We continue to strive to provide amazing quality products for your family -- directly from ours.

We know you will enjoy them as much as we do.

Many are aware that we've been selling quality farm related products here for a couple years -- fresh eggs, organic turkey and chickens, honey, beeswax candles, etc.

We've also planted our first vineyard in the spring of 2013, and you can expect some very interesting surprises from us in the coming years.  Pay attention, because something very exciting is coming to the Pontiac!

Please note: our store front hasn't been built yet, and the products are sold from the farm gate -- directly from our home.

Celebrating weeds (not weed)

Look what I found in a particularly weedy part of my garden: the first Monarch caterpillar I've seen a very very VERY long time.

Please

let

your

milkweed

grow.

I found that chubby little fellow lurking on a blade of grass so I moved him to this leaf, where he lay like a slug for quite a long time. Then I saw that he'd done a neat u-turn. Then I saw he'd eaten a patch of the leaf and taken off like a maniac. No idea where went. Looked everywhere. So I assume he's out there.

Let your milkweed grow.

As someone who lives on Baie road and heads up to Quyon often, it really starts to hit how long Alary road has been washed out — and how annoying it is to detour around to head up to Quyon, Shawville etc.

After two years of extensive renovations, Au Coin du Camionneur, also known as Trucker's Corner, opened in Luskville on Sunday June 17. 

Owners Benoit Galipeau and Robert Bergeron have completely reconfigured the building at the corner of the Eardley-Masham Road and Highway 148. New lighting, comfortable seating and large windows that open onto a breezy patio create an inviting ambience.

After five years of planning, construction has now started on the Les Abattoir les Viandes du Pontiac. Set on five acres on the outskirts of Shawville, the slaughterhouse is the brainchild of Quyon entrepreneur Alain Lauzon and three partners, Sofian Elktrousie, Ibrama Diagne and promoter Gilles Langlois.

“We are aiming to be open by end of October,” said Lauzon last week, as he watched forms being set for more concrete to be poured.

Turtle S.O.S.: Save Our Shells!

Trouble in paradise.

It's June and that means those crazy turtles are once again roaming dirt side roads and busy highways alike; intent on finding mates, water and good nesting places as they have always done, paying no mind to the deadly wheels zooming past. I stop for a lot of turtles at this time of the year and so far we have all lived to fight another day. However I have never seen a turtle stuck in the bone-dry and baking-hot rink at the Luskville Community Centre before. Bad turtle terrain for sure.

Re: Recognition of volunteer Firefighters

While sitting at our dining table enjoying our first coffee of the day on Sunday, May 20 at 6 a.m., my husband and I both heard a very loud “thunk” and wondered what the heck it was. Curiosity motivated my husband to investigate further; he checked our basement, nothing amiss. Checked the living room located on a lower level, noticed a man sitting outside on the guard rail.
