Ferme Vifranc Inc. is a family business that has been producing maple products for over 80 years. From father to son, tradition has been kept. Today, Vital Pelletier owns the family business and keeps that expertise alive. He represents the third generation while his son Kevin is slowly taking on greater responsibilities within the company. At the beginning of the 20th century, maple syrup production was done strictly for the needs of the Pelletier family. In the 1950s, production became increasingly commercial as the family began selling their maple syrup by the barrel. In 1988, the business was passed down to Vital Pelletier who, from 1988 to 1993, worked hard to improve the equipment so as to maintain the ecological practices that had been taught by his ancestors. That meant using stainless steel equipment and not using microwave technology to boil the maple sap. It also meant not using artificial fertilizers and not using chemicals products for the cleaning of equipment.
