Walking Tours of The Sugar Bush
Spring is in the air, the snow is getting soft and the sap is starting to run! It’s Syrup Season!! Please join us for walking tours of our sugar bush and see how Ontario’s first and sweetest agricultural crop of the year is made.
Your tour will include
- A guided walk through our active sugar bush (approximately 1 hour), where guests will see how the sap is collected and learn about the process of making maple syrup
- 500 ml of pure Maple Syrup to take home and enjoy
Due to COVID-19 our walking tours will have the following restrictions:
- All guests must pre-book a tour through our website
- No washroom facilities will be available
- Maximum of eight people per tour
- No entry into our sugar camp but guests will be able to observe the evaporator at a distance
Cost is $40 per group
Bring your boots, camera and sense of adventure! Walking trails are in good condition but can get very wet and muddy as the season progresses. We look forward to seeing you! Please note that we cannot guarantee that we will be boiling during your tour as we rely on Mother Nature.
MAPLE GROVE SYRUP
Hosts: Brent, Amy, Abigail and Charlotte Beers
In the small ‘ghost town’ of Uhthoff in Severn Township (just 12 km from downtown Orillia as the crow flies), youâ€™ll come upon Maple Grove Syrup. Within this 50-acre sugar bush of towering maple trees, we produce 100% pure maple syrup on a traditional wood-fired evaporator. Our trees have produced high-quality maple syrup for generations.
We started producing maple syrup with 50 buckets and a large open fire. Today, our renovated sugar camp has a new 3×10 Dominion and Grimm evaporator.
We operate with 800 to 900 taps: combining buckets, pipeline and tireless hard work involving the entire family. This includes our two young daughters and our beagle, Molly!
Spring – when the sap starts to run – is a time of great excitement for our family.
Maple Weekend runs April 3-4, 2021.
We would love if you would come and enjoy syrup season with us!
Highlights Of Your Maple Weekend Visit:
- Self-guided tour of our sugar bush (bring your rubber boots)
- Sample our all-natural 100% pure maple syrup and learn how sap turns to syrup
- Enjoy a light lunch and refreshments
- Family-friendly activities (weather-dependent)
- Coupons for Mariposa Market
