Colour of Wood Maple Syrup
Rick and Wendy started making Maple syrup on their 25 acres of managed forest in 2015 with 90 taps on buckets. They now have almost 1,000 taps on pipeline. It all flows downhill to their sugar house. Just sap, gravity, lots of fire wood and the help of Mother Nature. Their syrup is known for its unique label and wonderful taste.
Come and see how syrup is made. Walk the trails and enjoy a taste of warm syrup. They are located at 1255 Peterson Rd in Carnarvon and would love a visit. Farm gate sales available throughout the year. 249 993 0134

Fool's Gold Maple Syrup
Fool’s Gold started in 2015 when owner and founder, Ian Robertson rediscovered his love for the outdoors after 25 years in the banking world. Now, Ian is thrilled to fully devote himself to tapping and sapping and spending every day with nature. What started as a family endeavour with 20 hand-tapped trees in its first season, our syrup now comes from more than 350 taps, straight from our farm in Minden, Ontario, Canada.

Winterdance Maple Syrup
Winterdance’s maple syrup operation is a bit more high tech than Tanya’s grandparents. Rather than 100 trees tapped there are 2000 trees tapped currently and rather than going to collect the sap each day from the buckets on trees, pipelines with gravity feed bring the sap down to the sugar shack on it’s own. The nature of the Winterdance sugar bush sees a 300′ drop from the top trees to the sugar shack. Tanya’s grandfather boiled his sap down to syrup on an old wood stove, while Hank boils with wood too, his evaporator is alot larger and more high tech, making maple syrup more of a science than the art it used to be for Tanya’s grandparents.
But the end result, is still delicious mouth watering, pure and natural Maple Syrup!
