Nathalie and Dominic met back in 1992. In 2000, appreciating a simple life and open space, they settled with their two children on a bucolic piece of land in the Québec Eastern Townships. They are now dedicated to making people discover this “super fruit” that is sea buckthorn.

Hee Haw from the Eastern Townships of Québec!

Dunkey soapLise and Sandra visit this donkey farm (asinerie en français) near Ste-Anne-de-la Rochelle, Québec.

It might be a stretch for a gourmet food shop in the Ottawa Valley, but we are excited to be bringing back a lovely selection of donkey milk soap and some creams to Pêches.

Thank you Marie-Claire from Les Ânes en Culotte, for sharing your passion with us.
