The sugar houses can't rely solely on their syrup production, because it's so labor-intensive, so many have incorporated family activities, such as buggy rides, to draw in the masses. If you've got small kids, it's a nice day trip and ever so tasty!
Our intention was to have a nice pancake breakfast at one of the many sugarhouses that are in full swing right now, producing maple syrup. However, much to our dismay, the waiting list for breakfast was an hour and a half; we were hungry. The grounds were very nice though, so we walked a bit. I still love to see the buckets hanging from the trees, although most of the collecting is actually done with rubber tubing.
