Come and discover a place full of history with personalized guided tours on a centennial dairy farm. Located two minutes from downtown Coaticook, tours include a heritage barn, mini farm, educational garden, farm school and the historic character of The Way of the Pioneers. Established on a plateau that dominates the Coaticook Valley, one hour with our animators will open your eyes to the world of agriculture in the Eastern Townships. You can also bring your picnic and dinner on site! The Plateau Barn was built in 1912 by Eugene Orson Baldwin. Originally it became the longest barn in North America, thus enrolling it in the Guinness record. After having been maintained by several owners, including Lauréat Lavoie, OBG C.I.A.R.C. was born in 1989 with the purchase of the farm. Farm visits are an initiative of the C.I.A.R.C. to promote the learning of agriculture and agrotourism.
