Each spring, after the passage of a cold winter season, the locals start to think “finally the sugaring off season has arrived“.
Sugar maple forests and production of syrup and other maple products is an important industry in our area. Several producers have large sugar maple forests that produce syrup in large barrels for export or domestic use. There are also several smaller family run sugar shacks that transform the sap into maple syrup, sugar, taffy and butter for their families and friends.
A visit to a sugar shack and the chance to taste the syrup and taffy is a Quebec tradition that we share.
