Colour of Wood Maple Syrup

Rick and Wendy Wood started making Maple syrup in 2015 with 90 taps on buckets. They now have almost a 1,000 taps on pipeline. It all flows downhill to their new sugar house. Just sap, gravity, lots of fire wood and the help of Mother Nature. They are located at 1255 Peterson Rd in Carnarvon and would love a visit. Curbside pickup available. Colour of Wood syrup can also be found at Abbey Gardens

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!
