Opening Weekend

Happy first day of Spring! We are so lucky to live where we do and to be immersed in the natural beauty that surrounds us. Even in these uncertain times, the natural rhythms of spring continue -- we have seen a robin, the snowdrops are popping out, and the sap has been flowing very well. 

We have been able to make and bottle some exceptional maple syrup, and we will be open FOR SALES ONLY this Saturday and Sunday from 1pm - 5pm. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer tours, samples, or sugar-on-snow at this time. Our walking trail is marked, and you are more than welcome to take a self-guided tour through the sugarbush and enjoy some fresh country air.

For the safety of our customers and our family, we ask you to respect social distancing etiquette and stay home if you are feeling ill, and to substitute safe-distance smiles for hugs when visiting. We realize that many friends will be looking forward to visiting with Ken after his hip surgery, but to ensure his optimal health while healing he and Rene will be remaining in the house and not accepting visitors at this time.

Customers who have placed orders will be contacted individually. Your orders have been set aside and you are welcome to pick them up during our open hours or we are happy to hold onto them indefinitely until arrangements suit you later in the season. If you would like to place an order, you may do so via phone (705) 835-5780 or Facebook -- Please include your name, order, and contact info in your voice messages. Unfortunately, we have not had time to make maple sugar or maple butter yet this season and so these products will not be available this weekend. 
Please contact us if you have any questions at all, and we so look forward to seeing some familiar faces!
