Kemble Maple Syrup Tour

April 5, 2014, is the day for the 5th Annual Kemble Maple Syrup Tour and Arts in the Church.

This is an opportunity for the public to visit several local farms and see different ways Maple Syrup is produced in the Georgian Bluffs. Set ups range from a homemade evaporator processing sap from 35 taps, for personal consumption, all the way up to Miners Maple Syrup Products with 6200 taps on a vacuum system and using reverse osmosis. There are lots of animals to meet along the way including elk, sheep, livestock guardian dogs, border collies, chickens and highland cattle to name a few. New this year is a major sugar system overhaul at Miners Maple products. A new evaporator is now installed in a sugar shack that also received major renovations this winter. At Regal Point Elk you find activities and play areas for the whole family. The tour stops are open from 10 to 4. The well received Art show and sale is returning and is now in the Kemble United Church so you can enjoy at the same stop as your meal.

Continuing this year is an all-day Pancake Breakfast , served from 8:00am at the Kemble United Church. This can be enjoyed separate from the tour or as the meal included in your passport so come on out and start your day with the sweet taste of spring! Menu items include waffles, peameal bacon, pulled pork, home baked beans and more! Visitors on our tour in 2013 told us they really enjoyed the fabulous food, visiting the different farms, the friendly people they met along the way and seeing the different ways Maple Syrup is made. Your tour passport allows you to choose your route as you visit producers and choose a maple breakfast or lunch to enjoy included in the low passport price.

Breakfast is served from 8 - 10 and lunch is served from 11-3.
