Agriculture and tourism are two sources of income of the residents and the cheese connoisseurs enjoy visiting the Fritz Kaiser Cheese factory, whose reputation is well established. Agriculture is predominant in Noyan, with 95% of its territory zoned agricultural. Benefiting from a zone of thermal units ranking highest in Quebec, farmers obtain remarkable yields. Dairy producers supply the popular Fritz Kaiser cheese factory whose reputation is well established.
Noyan farms produce corn silage, soya, grain corn, small grains, alfalfa and hay. We also find the production of milk, beef, pork and grain fed veal.
