Stop At: White Meadows Farms, 2519 Effingham St, St. Catharines, Ontario L2R 6P7 Canada

In our small corner of the world where the right trees and climate combine to make 100% Pure Maple Syrup, tours into the sugar bush are an annual winter tradition. However, we believe something this good and this rare deserves to be celebrated all year.

Join our expert sugar-maker on a one-hour journey beneath the iconic maple leaves of the “off-season” sugar bush and discover the modern world of maple syrup production, the traditions that have survived the centuries, and the innovations that make today’s farms thrive. Witness how, in our three generations of sugar-making, we still craft our syrup 100% pure and simple, with no additives or sacrifice to the sap’s natural nutrients.

Who are these expert sugar-makers? Our sugar-makers are the chief masters of all things maple on the Farm. Often very busy giving our tree herd its deserved TLC, they’re setting aside time to take you deep into the character and complexity of 100% Pure Maple Syrup. There’s never been a better chance to ask your toughest maple questions, like:

Why is maple syrup production often compared to wine?

What’s the science that causes maple syrup to get darker and stronger later in the season?

How does the soil make Ontario maple syrup unique?

Your Discover Maple Tour begins in our hub of maple syrup production, the Sugar Shack, and ventures by wagon to the heart of the maple factory, the forest. Here the masters unveil the world of maple syrup from sap collection to the health and wellness of the trees, as you venture along our groomed walking trail. Linger afterward in the shade of the mighty maples for a legendary sugar bush treat, “stick-to-your-lips” delicious, Taffy-on-Snow -- another winter tradition we can’t let you miss.

This is truly a tour not to be missed! It’s on a beautiful family farm, and the tour is given by the owners. We ordered the picnic lunch and it was much more delicious than we could have hoped for. The little shop has fantastic...More
