Did you know that Canada produces 71% of the world’s maple syrup and with six local maple producers in our own backyard? This March, it’s time to get outside and see exactly how your favourite Canadian flavour is made!
The pinnacle of taste testing, you’ll find pancake breakfasts hosted at the sugar shacks throughout March and April. We admit: we’ve been hoarding our supply of local syrup since last year, but luckily, now is the time to stock up! Take the tour and congratulate nearby Curles Maple Products on their 150th anniversary, or check out O’Hara Sugar Maples, who just won first place for their sweet maple candy at The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.
Here’s where to find the sweet stuff across Hastings County. Don’t forget to tag #CelebrateMapleSeason for your springtime adventures at the sugar shacks!
