Meaford Maples

Maple Syrup Producer

Hosted by Steve and Karen Smith

Meaford Maples is an organic maple syrup operation that uses gravity-fed tubing to bring sap from the trees above. We are currently expanding from 150 taps to 800. The Smith family started making maple syrup from a few taps as early as the 1940s and has continued the tradition off and on over the years. Meaford Maples has been in operation since 2013 and was certified organic in 2020 by Ecocert. Organic certification attests to the purity of our product and demonstrates our commitment to sustainability.

What's on

Visit our sugar house to see how gravity helps us collect sap. You will also see how we process sap into maple syrup and bottle it for sale. Outside, you will see our collection tanks and several rolls of tubing that we will be installing in the bush this fall. Inside the sugar house, the evaporator will be running so you can get a feel of our process. Walk through the sugar house, so you can see the syrup tanks, the syrup filter and bottling unit.

If you are keen and able, you are welcome to hike up a short trail to the maple tree closest to the sugar house. There you will see several tubing lines meeting up before they drop their sweet liquid into the tanks each spring.

Video and slideshow presentations will enhance your visit.

You can learn about the health benefits of maple syrup and access recipes and suggestions for using maple syrup for more than just a topping for pancakes.

All visitors will receive a ballot for a door prize and a chance to answer a “skill testing question”.

Maple syrup and other maple products will be available for purchase as long as our supply lasts.

Please bring your mask and wear it inside the sugar house and at any time social distancing is not possible. We ask that you do not attend if you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid or have recently been in contact with someone who has tested positive. Thank you for your cooperation.
