Meet Your Tour Guide!

Meet the Tour Guide right in the central bustle of the farm. You’ll recognize our guides by their red-checked jackets and name tags, they are ready to greet you as you enter from the parking lot!  

Enjoy a Wagon Ride

Hop aboard our sheltered, tractor-pulled Sugar Shuttle and meander over meadow and farmland to meet the ‘standing people’ — as the natives called the maple trees.

Stops Along the Tour…

The Native Camp

Journey back to where legend says Maple Syrup began. Hear the tale of the axe that became the first maple tap, and the mother that found sisbaskwat in her cooking pot — that’s Cree for ‘maple sugar’.

The Pioneer Station

Find out who the Indigenous People shared their knowledge of “tree water” with…
Pioneers brought utensils that made Maple Syrup production faster and more efficient. Though not like the equipment we have today, your guide will show you practices that have stood the test of time.

The Flat Pan Station

See how the 1800s brought an industrial revolution that quickened maple syrup production. Pause with your guide here to weigh the similarities and differences between this device and today’s tools. Could the Flat Pan be a forefather to our modern evaporator? Why not ask your guide?

The Taffy Shack

Line up as we heat our Maple Syrup in a cast iron pot over an open flame. We’ll ladle it onto our table of snow so you can roll your own ‘stick-to-your-lips’ delicious taffy — a little treat to savour after your guide waves farewell

After your guide waves farewell, you’ll be set off on your own exploration of the sugar bush trail….
