A short tale…
A Century (And Counting) Of Ma Cabane En Gaspésie
Our story begins in 1884, when our ancestor, Louis Ouellet, tapped his first ever maple. For over one hundred years, generations of the Ouellet family have played host to friends and family with just one goal in mind: sharing our liquid gold! Over the years, we’ve been able to share the delights of the maple syrup season and our love of delicious food with so many people.
Today, the sixth generation of Ouellets strives to preserve our family’s generous and authentic values through the gourmet food products, baked goods, recipes, and delicious maple syrups that we masterfully create for customers all over Quebec.
Since 2010, Ma Cabane en Gaspésie has been running full steam ahead, opening four stores, distributing products to over 200 points of sale, opening an incredible traditional lodge, and creating innovative products, such as its premium maple syrup, gourmet products, and its spring water, the Sous-Bois.
The Quality Of Our Sap Is Second To None
The unique location of Ma Cabane en Gaspésie’s sugar bush—tucked away at the edge of the Chic-Choc Mountains, next to Saint-Damase, Saint-Noël and Sainte-Paule in the Matapedia Valley—gives our products their unique flavour. Our maple trees grow in a mineral-rich soil composition found only between mountain ranges and the coast, giving their sap a flavour unlike any other. While, yes, our passion for maple and the skills that we have masterfully perfected from generation to generation do go a long way to making our maple products as good as they are, the quality of our environment, of our air and of our soil are actually the key ingredients of everything we produce. These factors enable the trees in our sugar to bush to grow more slowly, giving our syrups their rich and distinctive flavour.
Ma Cabane en Gaspésie strives to protect the environment and our maple syrup heritage by using environmentally friendly and sustainable facilities. Here in the Gaspésie, Mother Nature makes all the decisions, and we have nothing but respect for her.
Ma Cabane en Gaspésie’s online store is the result of thousands of tourists, maple lovers and companies all over the province wanting to buy our 100% Gaspesian maple products year-round!
Did you know that all of our products (butters, jellies, sugars, coulis, vinaigrettes, sauces and treats) are made using our own 100% pure maple syrup?
