MAPLE SYRUP FESTIVAL

Come out during select dates in March and April and experience a Canadian spring in our sugarbush!  Sap collected from over 800 sugar maple trees is boiled on site into delicious maple syrup.  On your self-guided tour, you can visit our modern evaporator, and enjoy games and activities. Don't forget to stop by our Heritage Store to purchase some maple treats to take home!
