With the sap flowing and spring right around the corner, Maple Syrup Producers are eagerly awaiting Prince Edward County’s sweetest tradition - Maple In The County! Taking place on Saturday March 25th and Sunday March 26th, this year marks Maple’s very sweet, 16th birthday.
Presented by the Maple in the County Maple Syrup Producers, and with support from The County of Prince Edward Community Development Department, this year’s event features participation from twelve local sugarbushes: Sweetwater Cabin/Hubbs Sugarbush, Fosterholm Farms, Vader’s Maple Syrup, Nyman Farms, Loha Farms (New!), Sugarbush Vineyards, Waupoos Estates Winery & Sugarbush, Walt’s Sugar Shack, Strictly Maple, Three Dog Winery & Sugarbush, Roblin’s Maple Syrup (New!) and Justin’s Maple Syrup (New!).
Participating sugarbushes will have activities for the whole family - pancake breakfasts, sugar shack tours and demonstrations, taffy, wagon rides, lumberjack shows, maple products and more. Back by popular demand, the Picton Fire Department will be hosting their pancake breakfast at Loha Farms in Picton, with firetrucks on display for the kids.
