  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. I have never been to a true maple syrup farm but would love to go!! Thanks for the list I will have to check out some in my area this winter/spring 🙂
