At Ferme Benoit Vernier, we have been producing sweet corn for over 40 years. With more than 340 hectares of fields designated specifically for local sweet corn harvesting (the largest area in Quebec for this type of harvest), Ferme Benoit Vernier produces the best, sweetest varieties, such as sweet corn Gourmet. We start the harvest early in the morning to offer you a product always fresh, then refrigerate to keep it to the maximum before delivery to our various points of sale.   In order to meet the needs of the smallest customers, the farm offers its fruits and vegetables in different types of packaging, from the bag of 12 ears to the CPP for commercial distribution..
