A typical rural farm. Excellent, helpful and friendly staff. Restaurant of staff and also a place to buy sit-up on the snow. This is great for kids and adults alike!

Nice, but food is way too expensive for the quality.
Feb. 2021 • Family
Beautiful trails and nice ambiance. One thing however was disappointing was the cost of food. It was 75$ for 3 adults and 1 child to eat. I had the Bean Cassoulet, which was basically a soup. Not hearty at all, and a small serving with a half a slice of toast.

We are all still hungry.

Maybe it is different with the restaurant instead of the take out menu.

Still a nice spot but menu could use a tweak.

Wonderful, wonderful and truly wonderful
Jul. 2020
What an incredibly unique and great little spot. The whole experience was truly remarkable. My boyfriend and I came up for a nice breakfast (we had dietary restrictions - dairy free - which were easily accommodated) and a surreal hike. Love the vibe here with the owner personally coming by to say hello and check on things making our meal a little extra special. Highly recommend taking a day to go for some home cooked food, tasty maple syrup and a beautiful hike.

We also came home with some maple syrup, and this is a must :).

A lovely way to spend a morning
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We started with complitmentary biscuits then enjoyed a late breakfast of pancakes, bacon and sausage with a rum-maple mocha to chase it down. There's a gift shop full of maple-themed products (the maple butter will both enrich and ruin your life). The tour was pleasant with the speaker being very engaging, especially with the kids which was lovely to see. There's a picturesque trail which is about 6km if you do the whole thing but just remember to bring appropriate footwear in winter months (though you can rent snow shoes). The staff are all really welcoming and friendly which just created the most serene and relaxed environment. I will happily go back when friends/family visit.

Breakfast
Sep. 2019 • Friends
Cute and cozy little restaurant. Surprisingly I enjoyed the mac and cheese better than the breakfast. But the whip cream is very good. It is a very cute place off the beaten path.
Also I love how they have different maple syrup and it is now where I buy my maple syrup from. It is amazing the different taste based on the season and it is nice to be able to try them.

Family owned and operated Maple Syrup Farm
Sep. 2019
Spent an hour or two, had a nice meal and took the tour. Tour was given by the owner! Gave us a full appreciation for the work behind a Maple Syrup Farm. It was not harvest season, but she showed us as much as possible and a short film filled in the gaps. Food was not fancy and menu limited, but a great way to taste what they produce in various forms. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

A good stop for families as well as couples. Also at the foot of several hiking trails.

Unexpected Find
Sep. 2019
We have been hiking in the Truro area of Nova Scotia and found the "Rogart Mountain Trail" what we didn't realise was that the car park was also for Sugar Moon Farm. It was nearly full when we got there and we were expecting to see a lot a people on the train but everyone was in the farm enjoying their café, this is an out of the way place and this goes to show how popular it is. Anyway we completed the trail and then went on their farm tour, as they product the Maple syrup on site it was really interesting to how it was done.
This place is a little Gem, go and find it!

Great Maple Syrup Farm
Aug. 2019
Excellent Maple Syrup everything. Really enjoyed the tour by one of the owners. She explained the whole maple syrup manufacturing process. Earltown is off the normal tourist route, but definitely worth the stop.

Maple-y goodness - Only in Canada
Mar. 2019 • Couples
When it comes to maple syrup, Canada has cornered the market. And nothing really espouses this like a sugar shack. Maple syrup is still something of a cottage industry and Sugar Moon Farm is a perfect example of this. Nestled in the backwoods of Nova Scotia, and family run, this provides a tiny and amazing experience of what maple syrup is all about.
We came of a warm spring day when they were boiling the syrup (doesn't happen every day, so we were in luck). The place is tiny and very rustic - log cabin and all that, with hiking trails around, including up into the maple forest where the trees are tapped. The staff are very friendly and helpful at explaining how the sap is collected, transported and boiled down into syrup, with ample opportunity for questions. And of course, being able to sample maple candy prepared on the snow. The place includes a (very) cosy restaurant - packed most of the time - with a maple-based menu revolving around delicious, light wholewheat pancakes with a variety of traditional sides, all with ample maple syrup. And the appetizer biscuits with maple butter are to die for. Beverages and alcoholic beverages are also available, again with a maple twist, and then there are souvenirs and syrup to buy (of course) - all in a tiny space.

Would you make it bigger? No. since that would take away from the intimate experience. Would you change anything? My husband prefers regular pancakes, rather than wholewheat, but that's about it.

Well worth visit, and look forward to coming back in the summer for a different experience then!!!

The staff here were fantastic and the surroundings wonderful. The maple tour was very interesting and the trails were a pleasure to walk. The only recommendation I would make for travellers is to be ready to wait for a table in the restaurant. The food is excellent and worth the wait. Take a tour or walk the trails while you're waiting and the time seems to fly by.
