Foie gras farm tour near Montreal?

vidkid | Jan 12, 201105:49 AM

I'm wondering if anyone has had the opportunity to visit a duck farm that makes foie gras in the Montreal area (up to 2 hours away).

While I'm a huge fan of foie gras, I often find myself defending the practice to friends who claim it's inhuman and cruel. While I think it's challenging to definitively confirm or deny that allegation (and not what this post is about), I'm interested in observing the practice first-hand.

I'm going to find out if Brome Lake Ducks offers tours, but ideally I'd visit a smaller-scale producer (and hopefully one who can provide a tour in English, or won't make fun of my limited French).

Any leads? Searching the Chowhound board and Googleing have not proved fruitful. Merci d'avance!
