This Quebec farm cultivates over 150 different types of strawberries | We Are The Best | CBC


I’m in Lavaltrie, Quebec. Did you know that in winter, 25% of strawberries in grocery stores across the country come from Canadian strawberry nurseries that are selling their seedling to the US? A lot of these plants are grown right here, in Lareault’s family farm. Luc Lareault is the owner of Production Lareault, a company specialized in strawberries. In 2015, his business ranked among the biggest strawberry nurseries in North America. Production Lareault is more than a nursery. Every year, they sell over 25 million strawberry seedlings. And it’s a very creative business. They develop new varieties of strawberry plants and then, export them around the world. That is why… we are the best!

  1. This is actually pretty interesting. I didn't even realize sending plants grown in one place, and re-planted in another even existed. Cool clip CBC!
