As the spring warms up, geez, it’s taken a long time hasn’t it? the sap flow starts to dwindle and our maple syrup season will come to a close. We love making maple syrup and it surely is a labour of love, but all good things must end. BUT, we have one more event and it’s our grand finale of the maple syrup season of 2019. This weekend, April 6 and 7 from 10 am to 4 pm, sugar makers across the province will be celebrating the first crop of the year, yes, maple syrup is the first crop harvested in the year and we are participating in MapleWeekend.ca! How special is that! All across Ontario local sugar bushes will be open to the public so you can have a firsthand look at how maple syrup is made and get an opportunity to taste it too. We’ll have pancakes hot off the griddle with fresh maple syrup and maple sugar (that’s our secret way to eat pancakes, by the way). At OurSugarBush we’ll have some tree and leaf trivia to challenge your knowledge and give you a chance to win some OurSugarBush swag. There’s a marked a 1 km trail (the Red Flag Trail) for you to hike and enjoy the spring air!
Stop by for a visit to our little cabin and appreciate all of the maple goodness of OurSugarBush! There’s limited parking in the driveway so you might have to park alongside the road. Oh, and if it’s muddy, Oliver suggests that you wear your rubber boots!
We’re almost at the maple finish line! Except for the cleanup…ugh.
I ♥ maple!
