Maple syrup festival


Maple Syrup Festival Starts March 14th ,2020

Time to visit our Maple Sugar Bush and sample the sweetness of spring. Come and enjoy the simple pleasure of being in the fragrant maple woods on a crisp March or fresh April day. Smell the sweet aroma billowing from the sugar shack as the maple sap is boiled down to syrup. Savour the taste of hot pancakes fresh off the griddle smothered with our homemade maple syrup in the old log cabin. Experience maple syrup being made in the pioneer and modern ways is a Canadian tradition to be enjoyed year after year. We have been welcoming people to our traditional, family-run operation since 1963.

Our visitors appreciate our warm and personal approach, as well as the rustic setting we have maintained in our beautiful sugarbush over the years.
