Taking the time to do things right. Taking the time to respect nature. Taking the time to showcase the best of our berries. Taking the time to contribute to developing organic agriculture. Taking the time to develop the best products.
Time to contemplate the beauty of nature. Time to savour the best berries. Time to take a break. Time to breathe and recover from your day. Quality time with the family.
Good times. Time for yourself. Time for your health. Time for our environment. Time for future generations.
Giving time its full value and depth. Not too long, not too fast. Simply, as long as it takes.
Patience Fruit & Co makes healthy snacks from local (Quebec-grown) berries, raised slowly with the utmost care, taking time to savour them.
Patience Fruit & Co is a family business that has continued and cherished its values over generations.
We hold to the strong belief that it’s better to do things well than to do them fast. We move at nature’s own pace. We ask no more than what nature can give naturally, and we press our berries just enough to make them even tastier and juicier.
In the year 2000, the Le Moine family, as well as 2 other families chose to invest in organic cranberry farming in Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes, starting the Fruit d’Or Company. Even though at the time organic farming was not very common, and even almost non-existent, their desire for healthy, eco-friendly farming let them very quickly carve out a prime spot for themselves in the food industry.
Still, wanting more than anything to share their passion for organic cranberry farming with the world, in 2015, they decided to launch the Patience Fruit & Co. brand, an inspirational retail brand name that offers bigger, softer and juicier berries.
Process, Ingredients and Mission
We have a deep respect for nature, and we tend to her needs as much as we do our cranberries. Since the beginning, we have practiced organic farming, using no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Certain things cannot be rushed if you want to do them right. That is why we personally tend to our berries every at step of the way, from seed to shrub to dried fruit. By showering our cranberry fields with care and attention, we ensure that they will live on practically forever. We use a unique drying process that occurs slowly over a long period of time. Our berries are fully grown, and then gently dried to the perfect point, just the amount for them to retain as much of their flavour and nutrition as possible.
We make sure we'll all be able to enjoy nature's bounty for a long time to come
We’re always trying to find new ways to use cranberries — innovative products that are part of a healthy diet. Of course, we’re always thinking about the environment too, constantly looking for new ways to reduce our ecological footprint, such as using rainwater collected on the farm to flood the bogs, or contributing to the expansion of the organic movement. It’s our way of making sure we’ll all be able to enjoy nature’s bounty for a long time to come.
