It is a long drive from anywhere, the closest town being Truro. They serve a brunch that is ok but nothing out of the ordinary. Yes they serve it with real maple syrup but you can get that anywhere in N.S. including the grocery. They...More

Everything maple here. The food, the drinks, the desert! Great place to visit. Food is very good by the way. They also have tours at certain times. Beautiful scenery surrounding the farm.
