The Owners

Cindy Rivard et Dany Bastille Dany Bastille grew up on the family farm before leaving to study to become an aircraft technician and mechanical engineer.

Cindy Rivard studied communication and marketing.

After a few years living and working in the Montreal area, they decided to move to the Lower St. Lawrence, taking possession of the Batille family’s land and developing the farm and malthouse. This exciting project allowed them to combine their skills, their willingness to start a business together and their desire to do things differently.
