Notre Dame Creamery still operates in its original location built in 1921 by St. Boniface Dairy in Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes, Manitoba. In 1964 the Creamery was purchased by Meinrad Roch and has been a family-owned business since.
With the focus on product quality, rural roots and localized food the company has been able to stand the test of time. The business has had to diversify themselves in other areas of dairy production from butter to Organic Milk, Organic Kéfir and Goats Milk.
Notre Dame Creamery is a federally and organic certified processor. It is also one of the only remaining small-town Creameries in Canada. Like us on Facebook!
Saint-Léon is known as the wind capital of Manitoba.
It is the site of the first wind farm in Manitoba. You will be amazed by the majestic beauty of our 73 turbines. Learn about the new technology that produces electricity without polluting or taking away any natural resources.
We offer a PowerPoint presentation, a short informative film done by the province and a gallery on the wind turbines. We also have a 41-meter blade from a wind turbine and a nacelle shell on display right outside the centre.
You can also stop by a turbine on your way into town. This turbine, K1, was the first to be constructed in Manitoba. You can also go inside it by arranging an appointment (preferably a week in advance).
Turbine height: 80 meters
Blade length: 41 meters
Height at top of sweep: 120 meters
Base diameter: 4 meters
Wind turbines are as high as Winnipeg's Richardson Building
The blades cover the area of a football field.
Wind turbines weigh a whopping 220 tons
