Emu Charlevoix

Baie St Paul

You might think you'd have to travel to Australia to spot emus, but this farm raises the tall flightless birds here in Charlevoix, partly for their meat, but primarily for their fat, which they blend into skincare products. Learn more on a farm tour, or try an emu burger for brunch in the bistro (mains $10 to $16).
