PURPLE WOODS

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!
