Cidrerie Compton         

 6360 Rte Louis-S.-Saint-Laurent,
Compton, QC   

Cidrerie Compton is a family business specializing in the production of organic cider aged in oak barrels. The company was born out of the owners' passion for organic farming and the world of cider.

The owners are Jimmy Beaudoin, his partner Eva Grenier and his mother Pauline Samson.

Jimmy and Eva started their Cidrerie on the land of the family dairy farm, Ferme Beaudoin, owned by Pauline,which had already housed the organic orchard Les Délices de Compton since 2007. In addition to having access to a dozen varieties of fruit, they planted close to 2,500 additional cider apple trees.

"We are aiming for the English style, which is done with more tannic apple," says Beaudoin. We use the wooden barrel to give more tannin and body. "

Cidrerie Milton

5 route 137,
Québec, J0E 2C0


The Cidery Milton story dates back to 1927 when the orchard was first passed down from one generation to the next in the Lasnier family. Valérien Lasnier was a farmer and dairy farmer. Soil in the area is more suitable for cultivating apples. The family business decides to transition to apple growing. His son Michel Lasnier, with his passion for the land, takes over the company and modernizes the orchard. His expertise enables the company to introduce highly profitable dwarf cultivars. Diversifying the company’s offerings becomes necessary: Les Vergers de la Colline is born.

In 2003 the cider production facilities are constructed in 2015 the name is changed to Cidrerie Milton

 Cid Rosé named best cider at the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition.

Cidrerie Verger Bilodeau


980, Micheline and Benoît Bilodeau answered the call and acquired
land in Saint-Pierre Île d'Orléans in order to grow the apple,
undoubtedly the favorite fruit of Quebecers.

From the start, solidly supported by their children Josée and Claude, they began planting with dwarf and semi-dwarf apple trees.
They think big and after a lot of work and determination, the orchard now extends over six hectares and has more than three thousand trees producing a dozen varieties of apples.

From 1985, the majority of their production was mainly sold by pick-your-owning in the autumn season.

In 1995 a major shift began and a large building was erected to process the apple and make ciders. Nothing is forgotten, the kitchen, the press room, the fermentation room, the refrigerated room and the sales kiosk. Following this construction, an apple pressing service is offered to apple growers on Île d'Orléans.

In the fall of the same year (1995), the company innovated by creating the first cider house on Île d'Orléans. In 1997, cider and apple cider vinegar began to be marketed . Since then the family business has come a long way and now offers a wide variety of ciders, ice ciders and derived products from which it takes great pride.

They also produce maple and apple products. Top sellers include Apple butter and Maple Syrup. They also produce a iced cider.
