Sugar Bushes in Ottawa and Surrounding Areas

The temperature is gradually rising and the snow is beginning to melt. This only means one thing, it’s maple syrup time and time for a yearly family outing to one of Ottawa’s local sugar bushes!

Did you know that 85% of the world’s maple syrup comes from Canada and that 40 litres of sap is required to make just 1 litre of syrup? That’s pretty amazing! You can make so many great recipes with maple syrup including our very own Maple Bacon Cupcakes Recipe and Bacon Maple Bread Pudding Recipe!

Many sugar bushes in Ottawa offer all you can eat self-serve or cafeteria style brunch buffet. After you’ve eaten, you can also enjoy a maple tour, maple taffy, a farm with animals, walking trails, a playground, a horse drawn hay ride, and more!

Before you leave the Sugar Bush, don’t forget to stock up on maple syrup, taffy, and maple butter! You can even plan a sugar shack party to celebrate maple season with cocktails and appetizers that showcase your maple treats from the sugar bush outing.

    I would love to visit a Maple Sugar farm

  12. Veronique says:

    You missed Sucrerie de la montagne in Rigaud. It’s the best one around in my opinion.
    I tried Gallant maple sugar shack this weekend and I would not recommend. The food, the service and the experience was very poor.
    Bean town and domaine de l’ange gardien are good choices.

    This is a place I would love to visit someday

    I love maple syrup so much, and so does my hubby, children and grandchildren. I use it for my pancakes, top off my vanilla or maple walnut ice cream, and I use for my smoothies. I also make homemade chocolate with it! So healthy and yummy!
