On this 3rd generation Bering family-farm (that raises beef and grows cash crops), the real attraction is the Sugarbush, with 5000 litres of maple syrup produced each year. What started in 1990 as a simple hoop-house with picnic tables, is now a full fledged agri-tourism destination with pancake house, sugar-bush tours, petting farm and Sugar-Shack filled with maple goodies, fudge, syrup, and local favourite, Maple Kettle Corn.
The pancake house is busy, but the line moves quick. The house-made maple mustard on peameal bacon with a maple butter-tart chaser will please even the foodie in your group. Sugar-bush tours are an authentic experience; begin with a bumpy wagon ride to discover a forest full of storytellers in period costume who recount Canada’s colonial history, and the discovery of maple syrup. Horse-drawn buggy rides, campfires, a fiddler, and a maze; the whole family experience is simply, naturally, sweet.
