Fortune Farms

The Fortune Family has been making maple syrup in Lanark County since the 1840s, throughout six generations. Our sugarbush has always been a popular destination.

The 2021 Season

We’ve all had to adapt to a different type of season under the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our store and trails will be open to visitors for the 2021 season, subject to regulations from the health authorities. We request that masks be worn at all times by visitors while on the property and that everyone respect social distancing guidelines.

Customer orders and purchases can be arranged through our new online shopping tool. Follow our blog for updates and feel free to call us as well. We have implemented safe pick up procedures and also offer shipping or delivery. Please stay safe and we look forward to an exciting syrup season!

Shop Online

We’re excited to announce a new online store where you can place your seasonal orders or order from us at any time of the year.

You’ll be able to build your order and checkout, but there is no payment at the time of order. We’ll confirm your order and pickup/shipping preferences before confirming your order total.

We ship glass successfully all over the world!
