You don’t want to miss coming to our pancake house this spring! We are open Saturdays in March (3, 10, 17, 24, 31) and  March break (12-16) from 8:30-3:30. Come with family and friends to enjoy a delicious meal and take a FREE sugar bush tour to see how maple syrup is produced. All the proceeds go towards our day camp, to keep the cost affordable for all families. We look forward to seeing you!​
Your group will enjoy a guided walking tour through the forest and a tour of our sugar shack where the maple sap is made into maple syrup. Our knowledgeable guides will adapt the tour to make it appealing for any age group.  During the one and a half hour tour your students will learn about different methods of sap collection and the tools used in making maple syrup from past to present (this includes how our ancestors and the first nations made syrup).  Students will end their tour at our newly renovated pancake house with a pancake snack with our pure maple syrup.

On your visit to Agapé Valley Sugar Bush, you will experience the following:
·         A hay wagon ride from our Pancake House to our Sugar Bush operation
·         A hike through the forest to see the different methods of sap collection
·         Travel through the years to compare today’s process of syrup-making to the days of The Pioneers and Indigenous People of Canada
