Our Maple Sweet Shop is open all year long, to serve you with the best quality maple products possible. We hand make many maple products right on the farm; from the sweet (Maple Syrup, Maple Candies, Maple Butter...) to the savory (Maple BBQ Sauce, Maple Herb Dressing, Maple Vinegar...) we have something to please every taste bud. Free Tastings of our 4 grades of maple syrup, along with our other products made with pure maple syrup.

Maple Season (March) -- The Sugar Bush Trek: Relive the legend of Maple Syrup’s discovery. Test your hand at pioneer wood-cutting. Savour the sweet difference of 100% Pure Maple Syrup, warmed up, oozed over snow, and rolled on a stick -- called Taffy-on-Snow, what generation after generation calls the most beloved, must-have, sugar season tradition.

Hop on our Sugar Shuttle tractor-pulled wagon and let our family take your family into the heart of our working sugarbush. In the forest, follow in our sugar-maker’s footsteps as your guide leads you through the reimagined Native and Pioneer Camps of Maple Syrup’s rich history, solves your maple mysteries, and sets you on your own exploration -- Taffy in hand -- to experience the best adventures of the sugar bush.

there was no showing of anything during the week, just the store was open (and yes we bought stuff) but there was no demos or anything so you might want to call to get a schedule of exactly what happens when before you stop in.

A definite MUST if you are visiting anywhere near this area - 90 minutes south of Toronto and 25 minutes west of Niagara Falls. The tour gave us the full maple farm experience - a great balance between being indoors in the "kitchen" and outdoors among the trees. My daughters aged 9 and 7 were not bored or tired, so... More

Farm tour was super interesting with a wagon ride into the forest and taffy on snow for a snack!! Came with three older children - twenties- all said... More

We popped in on our way back to the city to get maple syrup and got so much more than just a maple shop. The lady running the till went through the different types of maple and how they make the syrup. We walked away with multiple types of syrup, bbq sauce, sugar and candies, along with a couple of...

This was just a quick stop to get some REAL MAPLE SYRUP, ended up getting an education on the syrup process, Absolutely mind blowing information. Free samples of different classes of syrups, I had know idea. In short... More

Sadly the owners have decided that since they were only getting a good crowd for breakfast on weekends they would stop serving breakfast completely. They should look into the wonderful breakfast spot formerly known as Flapjacks which was profitable for years while only serving breakfast on weekends. We were not the only family that left very disappointed.

Where do you go to learn all about how maple syrup is made... in August... to White Meadows of course! We started our day with an excellent cooked-to-order breakfast - mixing and matching several menu items to try as many items as we could! We then did the tour which included the how's and where's of syrup production before going... More

We drove all the way to St. Catharines for our annual pancake breakfast, only to find out the Pancake house was closed for "restructuring". The website did not even say the kitchen was closed. We were so upset and hungry we left. Not likely to return again.

We had an awesome Pancake Breakfast here, then went on a wagon ride with the kids. So much fun, hiking around a trail as well. We had fun with the animals, the kids really enjoyed that.
