Maple Syrup is made only in Eastern North America, however this delightful 100% pure natural sweetener is enjoyed by people around the world. Native Americans taught the European settlers how to gather the sap from maple trees and boil it down to produce maple syrup. Today, modern equipment is used to make maple syrup, but the process is still the same. Our Canadian heritage comes alive every spring with the arrival of another maple syrup season. Maple syrup is made during March and April when the weather conditions are cold at night and warm during the day. We have 4500 taps spread over 100 acres of maple bush. Approximately 44 kilometers of pipeline is strung throughout our maple bush to collect the sap. We use a tractor pulling a trailer with a 3000 litre tank to bring the sap from the storage tanks in the maple bush to our road side maple sugar house. It takes approximately 40 litres of maple sap to produce 1 litre of maple syrup. We use a modern wood fired evaporator to boil the sap down, and package all of our maple syrup on site.
