Maple Syrup Farm Adventure

I have always been fascinated with how Maple Syrup is made. I had to look no further, as it turns out a Maple Syrup farm was only 35 minutes away from my home. Lucky me, they were giving tours. It was like fate. And what a tour it was! For those of you who don't know, the Maple Syrup season is very short and cold. Maple syrup is collected during the last 3 weeks of March and sometimes into the early days of April. For this adventure, I was, surprisingly equipped to handle the weather,( minus having a scarf. I will be sure not to make that mistake again).

We arrived early. $10 admission gets you a tour of the maple syrup fields as well as a tour of the barn. We were forty-five minutes early because we didn't know when the tours began for the day. It was a blessing in disguise because I had the pleasure of meeting some of the farmhands. I found out the majority of the people who work there are volunteers. Their love for the farm can be seen through their care and concern for the animals and the kindness they show to the guests.

They have a delightful variety of farm animals; Horses, sheep, goats, peacocks, donkeys, pigs, chickens, etc.

The Maple Syrup Tour

Whether you are 5 or 50, the Maybury Maple Syrup tour is fun. You are shown over 100+ acres of the Maybury farm with a well-informed tour guide. Standing in a vast expanse of maple trees basking in the crisp morning air. Maple Syrup production is a very fun and fascinating process. If you have a maple tree in your backyard you can partake in it during this season. One fun fact I learned is that syrup is originally clear when it comes out of the tree. When it is vaporized it then turns thick and brown, which they show you at the 'Sugar Shack'. Once you see the process they offer you a sample of fresh Maple Syrup and it is delicious.

Maybury Gift Shop

They also have a wonderful gift shop where you can remember this adventure. The gift shop is fashioned like a cozy log cabin where inside I purchased a small jar of maple syrup and raw honey. They have a wonderful variety of country time store items: homemade Jam(Peach,strawberry, raspberry,) decorative beeswax candles, maple syrup bath soap in various scents (*Lavender was my favorite) ,Raw honey, Candy, Various toys for the little ones to play with and recipes to use for the Maple Syrup you are sure to buy.

This Maple Syrup tour was a much-needed excursion. It was good to get out into the outdoors and smell the fresh, crisp air. I will definitely return back in the Spring to welcome the baby animals as well as visit their Bee colony. If you haven't visited a Maple Syrup farm you should.
