Tradition meets modern practices
As you tour the farmland that was once just a forest and has been planted with maple trees that have since matured, you can freely ask questions. No worries, your local maple syrup expert is sure to know the answer!
Next, it’s time to experience an evaporator house where the liquid from the trees is boiled at over 400° C. Just when you are imagining that sugary taste, your tour guides, Brian and Miriam, satisfy your senses with a spoonful of fresh maple syrup.
The taste is savory… sugary, sweet, smooth. An image of a stack of pancakes topped with butter and maple syrup fills your mind and you can’t help but smile of past favorite times.
