Family Maple Experience

Journey to our corner of the diverse Carolinian forest for this hands on, interactive event on our 6th generation farm.  This is not your average trip to the sugar bush!  Inspired by our award winning, exclusive experience “The Sweetest Smell on Earth”, you will engage all your senses as you tap a tree, collect and boil sap in a hollowed log, make maple taffy on snow, taste sap at different stages of boiling and enjoy a tasty brunch topped with pure maple syrup.

Try your hand at tapping a tree!

Dress for the weather!  We will be outdoors for a significant portion of the experience, rain, snow or shine! Part of our time will be spent walking on somewhat uneven ground in the bush. For your comfort and safety please choose appropriate footwear.
