Opening Weekend 2012

The weatherman is predicting a bright and sunny weekend with above freezing temperatures in the afternoons. We expect that to get the sap running and it should make for an ideal opening weekend! It will be a perfect time to visit the sugarbush; bring your boots and enjoy an early spring walk through the woods, and of course enjoy some fresh made sugar-on-snow! We will also have some of the new crop, first-run syrup bottled up and ready for sale.

We will officially open Saturday, March 10th, and will remain open seven days a week until the end of the season. Our hours are 1:00pm - 5:00pm daily. It is a good idea to phone (705) 835-5780 on the day of your visit, as our phone message is updated each day with information on whether or not the sap will be running - remember, the trees require freezing temperatures overnight, and above-freezing temperatures in the daytime for good sap flow. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Getting sticky! Happy kids enjoying some traditional sugar-on-snow at the farm last season
