Donald, Dominique et Sylvain Joyal

The family farm Donald Joyal located in St-Marcel de Richelieu is the largest pickle producing and salting business in the province of Quebec. They hand harvest 5000 tons of pickles annually, in a time frame of 6 weeks, between July and September, operating 10 hours per day. 50% of that amount is sold fresh, and the other half is brought directly to the nearby factory for transformation into marinated, canned or frozen pickles. Their biggest pride is the thriving local consumption of this product, also put forward by many renowned chefs.
