When you visit you will get to experience all things maple, seeing the process starting at sap from the tree right through until it is finished maple syrup. You will be able to take a self guided walk through the woods to see how the pipeline goes from tree to tree collecting the sap. The sugar house will be open and on display showing how maple syrup is produced using modern equipment. Maple syrup will be available for sampling allowing you to choose which grade of maple syrup is your favourite before making your purchase.
