Fall has arrived and with it lots of rain which will be good for our maple trees. Fortunately,the gypsy moth does not like maple tree foliage and so our sugar bush was spared severe damage which was very intense on other tree species in this area.
With the warm weather and lots of sunshine this summer the trees should have produced lots of starch which will turn to sugar and hopefully result in extra sweet sap next spring.
The trees are just starting to turn colour with the soft maples showing quite a bit of red foliage. It’s a nice time to take a stroll through our sugar bush and our trails will be open this Saturday and Sunday and also next weekend for the Fall in Love with Maple sugar bush visitation event across Ontario.
Our camp will also be open with appropriate Covid protocols and we still have Amber and Dark syrup for sale.
Open 10 – 4pm for two weekends:
Sat, 25 Sept & Sun, 26 Sept
Sat, 2 Oct & Sun, 3 Oct
Your sweet tooth doesn’t have to wait until spring!
Fall in Love with Maple at Ontario sugarbushes from September 25 – October 3, 2021.
Fortune Farms will be open on the both weekends during this time.
