Érablière Escuminac was established in 1998 when Martin Malenfant decided to set up his sugar bush on a century-old maple-growing area of 500 hectares at Escuminac in the Baie-des-Chaleurs in Gaspésie. This land has a particular feature: it also includes one of the finest mature yellow birch forests in Quebec. Martin Malenfant wanted to produce a high-quality syrup while respecting the environment, working in harmony with nature. Since 1998, he has implemented a strict plan of management of his sugar bush and high standards of production. In 2006, he finally received his organic certification.
