Municipalité de Saint-Jacques
The municipality of Saint-Jacques was founded in 1774 by about thirty Acadian families. It is considered the Acadian cradle of Lanaudière. Visit the church and enjoy the gardens, farms and many sugar shacks in the area. In summer, don’t miss the chance to pick your own strawberries or to attend the gastronomic event, Les Fêtes gourmandes de Lanaudière! Another interesting stop is the innovative pig farm, Cochon cent façons, where you can learn about a different approach to sustainable pork production.
