Welcome the spring season with a taste of this true gem of a fruit: the blueberry! Take advantage of our 20% discount on the entire range of Maison du bleuet products available at the Museum Shop: dried blueberries, blueberry spread, blueberry jam, and several other exquisite specialities! Did you know that indigenous peoples once used this little fruit—an icon of the Lac-Saint-Jean region—in both its fresh and dried form? The growing of blueberries in Lac-Saint-Jean is more recent, however, dating to the 1800s. The abundant crops are due to the great fires of 1870, which made the region’s soil ideal for blueberry cultivation!
