Places To Fly-East: Stanstead-Weller, Que.
Home to ‘Beefalo Burgers’, sweet corn and other farm-fresh, organic produce, George Weller again extends an invitation to the flying community to join him for his eighth annual fly-in at the Stanstead/Weller airport (TQ2), located 70 nm southeast of Montreal.
For $15, you can eat as much as you like from the produce Weller grows on his property. With a 2600-foot grass strip, there’s plenty of room to accommodate even turboprops, which have attended in the past. Weller advises that he has removed the trees east of the runway last year.
A unique feature of Weller’s aerodrome/farm is his u-pick farm. In addition to the corn, you can find several varieties of tomatoes, yellow potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, melons, tomatillos, fennel, peppers and more. “Come any time,” says Weller. “Just pick the produce, check the price chart, weigh your stuff and leave the money in a container in the new garden shed. It is by the garden entrance gate, all just off the runway to the east about 200 feet.”
