Our Story


The ‘Binerie Plantagenet’ is a small franco-ontarian business producing over two tons of baked beans per week. The business produces four types of baked beans: vegetarian, breakfast (sweeter), maple syrup and traditional with bacon fat. Formerly, two different bean businesses were cooking beans (Lalonde Family and Lapensée Family). In 2000, they merged to become La Binerie Plantagenet. Besides offering three different kinds of beans, La Binerie Plantagenent also produces delicious take home meals: beef bourguignon, chili, various pies, lasagna, ragouts, spaghetti sauce and the list goes on!

At the beginning of 2019, a third generation of Lapensée officially joins the ranks of La Binerie Plantagenet. Learn more

Come and visit us and be tempted by the various specialties that we offer at our boutique, fresh or frozen. Take a moment to visit our ‘fart caboose’ which explains the transformation of an old bakery into a true baked bean factory… A lot more that just beans and sugar pies!

Our small Ontario village, Plantagenet, owns the title of the Capital of the Baked Bean. A Bean Festival takes place every September since 2011. We host the Canadian Strong man Championship as well as numerous activities and fun things to do for the whole family!


Paulin and Marielle Lapensée started their business in 1977 and baked 25 tons of beans in their first year! Growing up, the couple’s four children helped out and served beans suppers and food tastings in stores. In 1990, Alain bought his parents’ business and grew the operation. Just like her father, Chloé fell into the cauldron when she was just a kid. Following in his footsteps and becoming a business partner seemed natural. Now with over 35 people on staff and a dedication to consistent wholesome quality, la Binerie is ready and willing to take on whatever challenges and opportunities the next chapter brings.
