Maple Country Sugar Bush
My uncle had a sugar bush just outside of Perth, Ontario. In 1990 he had a heart attack and he was told no more hard work. I had just finished high school and was looking for a job so he asked me if I could run his sugar bush for him. I agreed and I took a college course on maple syrup production and I ran it for a few years and I loved it. In 1998 he passed away, it was a hard time with his death and the ice storm all at the same time. I bought that sugar bush from my aunt and grew the business from there. Just this past summer (2012) I bought Grandpa Bob's sugar bush near Quadeville and we expanded the number of taps at that site. It is a family run business and we love it. We offer free tours and we can answer any question that our visitors have. It started as a hobby and now were lucky enough to make a living at it. We would like to thank our customers for there support this would not be possible without them.
All our products are 100% pure except for our maple suckers and our maple hard candies they contain 25% glucose
