New This Year- Walking Trails
For years people have been asking for walking trails and this year we were able to make it happen. For the first year ever, come take a walk, or snowshoe through over 2km worth of trails that will lead you through our beautiful property.
(The walking trail will be open 7 days a week, No pets allowed)
** Please note we are a working farm. The trails are open during the week (8am-5pm) and are the only part of the farm open to the public on weekdays. We ask that you please stay on the marked trail and do not wonder the rest of the farm during weekday hours**
During maple syrup season, we tap a number of our tall maples, using the old traditional bucket method.
Our sugar shack is an age-old log cabin, with a wood-burning evaporator, to show you how maple sap is turned into syrup, reconfigured to provide a Covid-safe visit.
A favourite sugar bush tradition of ours is back! The Taffy Shack will be open and making fresh maple taffy on the snow.
The Animal Barn
Don’t forget to swing by the Heritage Barn, built in 1867, to visit our animal friends. Equipped with hand-washing stations and newly laid out to allow for maximum physical distancing. You might even get a chance to say hi to everyone’s favourite, “Malcolm”!
Try delicious food from our new Walkabout menu! Designed to be enjoyed as you explore the farm, the menu includes some of our classic sugar bush food as well as some new selections. Hot drinks will also be available.
Allergies & Sensivities
Although our recipes do not include nuts or nut products & we take precautions, since we are open to the public, it is impossible to guarantee that our products have not come into contact with peanuts, nuts or other allergens.
We encourage anyone with food sensitivities, allergies, or special dietary needs to check with Management for an up to date list of ingredients.
Your welfare is our first concern.
Our Pet Policy
Out of the safety & concern for our guests & farm animals, we cannot allow dogs (with the exception of licensed service animals) on the property.
