Long Description:
After some initial difficulties, it is by using his lawnmower to write the word "asparagus" in a big field in front of his house that Mr Poncelet made his production known to us and other users of road 323. Sculptures on the theme of asparagus installed on the roadside and which vary from year to year, also attracts the eye of the passers by. (See our pictures for a brief overview.) Today, Mr Poncelet annual production is 8 to 10,000 pounds of asparagus and it is sold entirely from his farm.


Originaire de Belgique, Guy-Louis Poncelet produit des asperges au Québec depuis 1980. Après des débuts assez difficiles, c'est en écrivant le mot "asperges" à la tondeuse dans un grand champ en face de sa maison, qu'il s'est fait connaître de nous et des autre usagers de la route 323. L'endroit attire aussi le regard grâce à des sculptures sur le thème de l'asperge installées sur le bord de la route, qui varient d'une année à l'autre et dont nos photos vous donnent un bref aperçu. Aujourd'hui la production annuelle de l'aspergeraie de M Poncelet est de 8 à 10,000 livres et est vendue en totalité à la ferme.
