If you’re looking for a sweet time this March, then head to McCully’s Hill Farm. Each year, McCully’s Hill Farm hosts Maple Syrup Festival weekends.
The fun and the syrup flows for all ages at McCully’s Hill Maple Syrup Festival where visitors can learn how maple syrup is made from start to finish.
The tour begins on a horse-drawn wagon ride through the sugar bush to see how the magic of maple syrup making begins. Then follow the process to the sugar shack to learn how the sap is made into maple syrup and all the other yummy maple treats. Kids (and adults too) can also take a peek in the barn and say hello to a donkey or two. McCully’s Hill Farm has been home to some of Canada’s finest livestock, including Suffolk sheep, Holstein cattle, Black Angus cattle, Tamworth pigs, Clydesdale and Belgian horses, Sicilian miniature donkeys to name a few.
Don’t leave without filling your tummy. Stay for a delicious pancake brunch featuring McCully’s own maple syrup to wrap up a great day in the country.
Every year local charities volunteer to help out with the pancake brunch.
During March Break the farm is open daily and offers guided walking tours through the sugar bush. Learn how maple syrup is made and meet the farm animals. It’s a great way to get the kids out during the break for some outdoor fun and exercise! Be sure to wear appropriate foot wear and clothing.
