Our Maple Sweet Shop is open all year long, to serve you with the best quality maple products possible. We hand make many maple products right on the farm; from the sweet (Maple Syrup, Maple Candies, Maple Butter...) to the savory (Maple BBQ Sauce, Maple Herb Dressing, Maple Vinegar...) we have something to please every taste bud. Free Tastings of our 4 grades of maple syrup, along with our other products made with pure maple syrup. Maple Season : January - April. Take the sugar shuttle (wagon ride) to and from the sugar bush at your leisure. Along the walk through the sugar bush you will learn all about the many species of trees that make our forest unique. At our Native Camp you will meet reenactors who will share the legend of the discovery of maple syrup, see how Pioneers learned the maple ways of the natives and used new tools to help sweeten their lives. It takes two to cut wood the old fashion way, as you learn how to be a lumberjack. A must have treat from the deep woods is maple taffy on snow, or a campfire roasted hot dog, then get lost in the sap line maze. Our musicians and re-enactors will keep you and your family entertained for hours. Enjoy some skating and tobogganing in a beautiful country setting on our Barnyard Skating Rink and toboggan hill. A wonderful way to spend a few hours on weekends in January and February.(weather permitting) Then, Come inside and enjoy our warm and friendly Maple Lodge for a Hot and Fresh all day breakfast. Pancakes are just the beginning at our farm, with all the Pure Maple Syrup you can enjoy.

We stumbled across this place while out for a Sunday drive and decided to check it out. We were surprised to find it such a big place with so much to do. The petting zoo was super cute, especially the little baby lambs. The pancakes etc were delish and they are not cheap with the syrup. The wagon ride was... More

We visited White Meadows Farms last weekend for their Maple Syrup Festival. Their grounds are very well-organized and the "time travel tour" through the history of maple syrup production in Southern Ontario is among the best I've seen. And let's not forget the onsite restaurant where you can satisfy the appetite you built up out in the forest by chowing... More

The cafeteria style service makes for very efficient service and there is always hot fresh food being served. I had the Niagara Gold - pancakes with peaches, whipped cream and make sugar and a Maple Hot Chocolate.... More

We return a couple of times during the winter season each year for big fluffy pancakes, maple baked beans and the entire breakfast experience!!! $6.99 gets you a scrambled eggs, pancake, sausage and potatoes meal, add a maple tea or coffee and you've got a winning combination for those cold mornings to enjoy with the whole family!

Went last March break with my grandson to spend the afternoon. The food is very good and the walk trough the maple sugar bush quite educational and fun to explore. Hope to make it again this year with both grandsons

Wonderful tour, very interesting. You can start with breakfast in the Pancake house with pancakes and maple syrup, they also have eggs, sausage, great breakfast! Then follow the whole procedure from the tree to the evaporation vats, everything in the process is covered. It is so much fun riding the wagon into the bush and getting to see how the... More

We got to see where they make maple syrup and two young women answered all of our questions and explained the whole operation to us even though it was after labor day and tours were on weekends. I had to put the Latitude and Longitude coordinates into my GPS to find this place because they are outside of St. Catharines... More

These guys are passionate about what they do and they make what they sell. The tour was definitely worth doing and well presented - took about an hour and was really interesting. All in a good trip that is only 30 minutes drive from Niagara Falls.
