Recent changes in the labeling requirements means that our maple syrup labels are changing. Don't worry, what is in the bottles is the same lovely pure Ontario syrup that you know and love.
We have no doubt that this will cause a little bit of confusion, and hope that the transition is as smooth as our syrup is sweet.
The tapping of maple signals the start to a new harvest season, as the trees warm up in the day and the sap starts to flow, we begin to see the first signs of spring. When the maple begins to bud, we will begin to tap birch for birch syrup and shortly after that we will start to see the first leeks poking out of the forest floor followed by coltsfoot, fiddleheads and morels and then all of a sudden spring is in full force.
