Verger Belliveau Orchard, one of Atlantic Canada's premier grower and supplier of apples, is nestled among the scenic rolling hills of Pre-d'en-Haut village.
Located in the Memramcook Valley of southeastern New Brunswick, Canada, this region is known as the birthplace of the new Acadia. Rich in cultural heritage and fertile land, the area has been home to Acadians since the 17th century. Appreciated for its beauty and historical significance, the area has provided a bountiful harvest for many generations.
Verger Belliveau Orchard is a family business specializing in the production, storage, packaging and processing of apples. In addition, we provide packaging and storage services to other growers in the region and are the largest shipper of fresh apples in New Brunswick. Our orchards, located just 20 minutes outside the city of Moncton and the neighbouring city of Dieppe, are also enjoyed as a popular destination location for families and educational school tours throughout the region.
Our Orchard, originally known as the verger Beauséjour, was founded in 1932 and for many years was cared for by Camille Sébastien (Bastien) Bourgeois. He was the first to get involved in the adventure of growing apples and took great interest in his endeavors. In 1956 the orchard became the property of the Congregation of Holy Cross, who renamed it les Vergers Belliveau. For many years Louis Bourgeois worked for the Holy Cross Priests and in 1967 acquired the orchards for his family. Today, his son Robert continues the family tradition at Verger Belliveau Orchard.
For centuries Acadian families have settled here, farming the fertile land of the Memramcook Valley. We, the Bourgeois family, are proud to continue the tradition, and invite you to visit our corner of paradise. Come and discover the beauty of the Orchard as we share our experience and traditions with you.
