Legault is one of the rare Brussels sprout producer in Quebec. The
profession of Brussels sprout producer goes well with the profession of
apple grower. At first, it looks like there are more leaves than sprout.
It is only when you look closer that you can see all these little
sprout attached to the stem.
It is only after you have removed all the leaves that the harvest is completed. The Brussels sprouts are then piled up on a wagon to be process at the warehouse. An easy to use specialized machine cuts the sprouts from the stems. The sprouts are separated, inspected, sorted and packaged. Most Brussels sprouts found at your super market comes from Richard Legault’s farm, profession that was transmitted from father to son.
