Petite Patrie – What’s in a name?
“Petite Patrie,” literally translated from French, means “Little Homeland.” The Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia is a homeland for many people: the Mi’kmaq people, our Acadian ancestors, and the New England Planters. In fact, people from all over the world have come to this beautiful valley and decided to make it their own little homeland.
Twice a year the pods are harvested. As most farmers own a small parcel of land, they usually form cooperatives which operate a central cacao processing plant for the benefit of all farmers.
Chocolate tasting is not unlike wine tasting. We'll show you the steps. Begin by turning off your TV and avoiding distractions, because you’re about to taste chocolate and nothing else matters!
