Enjoy the last of winter and beginnings of spring with the age old tradition of making maple syrup. Learn the earliest known sugaring techniques of Canada’s first people, with the heating of hot rocks in a fire and transferring them into a sap filled, hollowed out log. Try your hand at the bow and arrow target shoot! As you continue down the sugar bush trail, you will enter the pioneer camp, and experience the progression of using cast iron pots over a fire. Grab a partner and see how easy, or not so easy, it is to use a cross cut saw. Learn about the fur trade industry and how commerce started in Canada, at our trading post. Lastly, experience modern day maple syrup production, as you see how we collect our sap using a closed line and vacuum system.
Watch the maple sap boiling in the evaporator, and you might be lucky to view a “draw off” of syrup while you visit. Finish it off with a taste test over our homemade pancakes, and purchasing our many delicious maple products available in our on farm store.
