Spring is maple syrup season, and Kawarthas Northumberland has ample opportunities for you to soak up the sap-to-syrup magic. Enjoy demonstrations, live music, games, crafts and more at Buckhorn Maplefest at McLean Berry Farm. Or consider The Roost Farm or Clancey and Gale’s Maple Syrup Farm in Kawartha Lakes, both of which earn rave reviews every year. Curle’s Sugar Shack in Northumberland County is a fantastic repository of maple history, and the Warkworth Maple Syrup festival featuring Sandy Flats Sugar Bush is another perennial favourite.
Wherever you go, savour the unique flavours of the season. You might also try visiting two or three sugar bushes to experience the subtle differences geography, weather, and other factors have on the taste of maple syrup.
