Tour Details

A visit you won't forget! Join us as we travel from the St Jacobs Farmers Market to a sugar bush during the peak of the sap run. As you travel through the tall Sugar Bush you will see the methods used to collect sap. Learn how maple syrup is produced as well as see the different working methods from the past and present. As you're watching the steam rise and sipping on complimentary hot beverages memories are sure to be made. Pancakes and maple syrup are also offered as part of the tour. This is a great way to sample the fresh maple syrup. You are welcome to spend as much time as you wish at the sugar bush as the horse drawn shuttle will be operating between the Market and Sugar Bush on a scheduled basis.

Listed below are a variety of family friendly activities offered while at the sugar bush.
  • Maple toffee on snow ($2.50 per stick)
  • Old fashioned log sawing
  • Farm Petting Zoo
  • Tapping a maple tree
  • pancakes and maple syrup (included with tour)

You will have the opportunity to purchase Maple Products while at the Sugar Bush.
