Season Ends, Dark Syrup Is Available

 April 7th aka March 38th?!

We had a fairly significant snowfall overnight and things are looking a little different at the farm today then they were earlier this week. Despite the return of winter, our production season has come to an end. In the middle of the week, the spring peepers were singing, and the maple syrup flavour changed to signify the end of the season.

Those of you that have been patiently waiting will be pleased to know that we were able to produce some dark maple syrup in those final few days, and it is now available for purchase at the farm. We are open today, Saturday, and Sunday from 1pm - 5pm. After this, please call (705) 835-5780 to check our hours as we will be busy with sugarbush clean-up, and hoping for warmer days like everyone else!

Coming to the End

The sun is shining, the snow is melting, and the sap is slowing down to a trickle. We have not had frost overnight for a few nights now, and the forecast is not showing any in the near future. As such, we anticipate that this may be our final weekend of production for the season. It is beautiful weather for a walk in the sugarbush, and it may be your last chance to see sap in the lines until next year so come by, say "Hi", and stock up on natural sweetness. We are open today and tomorrow from 1pm - 5pm.
