MAPLE SYRUP FESTIVAL
Come out and experience a Canadian spring in our sugarbush! Sap collected from over 800
sugar maple trees is boiled on site into delicious maple syrup.
Visit our modern evaporator and enjoy fireside demonstrations, horse-drawn wagon rides, games, activities and, of course, pancakes with real maple syrup!
Don't forget to stop by our Heritage Store to purchase some maple treats to take home!
