Our Maple Syrup

We have been making Maple Syrup, with our neighbours, even before we grew apples. In 1998 we decided to turn a hobby into a busi-
ness and started Woodlands Maple Syrup. Our Maple Syrup uses a traditional method of production: Maple sap collected in buckets, gathered by hand from over 450 Sugar Maple Trees and a wood fired evaporator.

The sugar season usually begins in mid March and can last into late April during a late spring. The average season lasts three to four weeks. Visitors are welcome. It is recommended to make an appointment as “sugaring” is weather dependent and it is difficult to predict any more than two days ahead if we will have any sap to process into syrup.
