History of Fermes E&D LEVESQUE Potato Farms
In 1920, Edmond LEVESQUE Sr. establishes the farm in Saint-André, close to Grand Falls, in New-Brunswick.
- The traditional farm exploits various livestock while growing & selling potatoes.
In 1945, Réal LEVESQUE takes over the farm from his father and focusses his business on milk production.
While doing milk production & animal breeding, growing and selling potatoes provide regular contracts with a new transformation local factory (McCain).
In 1975, the family gives up milk production and specializes into the production of table & processing potatoes.
In 1984, brothers Edmond & Daniel LEVESQUE take over from their father, Réal, and concentrate their business furthermore into the potato industry.
In 2008, after working on the family farm since their youth, Eric & Denis LEVESQUE (Daniel’s sons), start woking full time alongside their father and uncle.
