At Fortune Farms we take the time with our visitors to explain the art and science of maple syrup making.

Fortune Farms


During the season we boil fresh sap nearly every day to make syrup. We also make maple candy and maple “butter”.

On weekends the Shanty Men operate a small wood-fired evaporator and the Kettle Boys tend their kettles over open fires just for visitors. You can experience the pioneer methods of making syrup and then taste the differences resulting from traditional to modern syrup making.

After a walk in the sugar bush along an interpretive trail and then back to the sugar camp to enjoy fresh taffy on the snow. The Fortune family will do their best to make your visit to the sugar bush a tasty and educational experience.

You are invited to smell the steam, taste the fresh syrup and watch all the action!
