Sandy Flats Sugar Bush

Sandy Flat Sugar Bush



Point those wheels towards Warkworth- a truly maple-loving town- to discover Sandy Flats Sugar Bush. Around since the 1800s, this sugar bush is perfect for those craving a quintessential Canadian maple experience.

Each spring, this 150-acre property taps about 50 acres of pure sugar maples and invites guests out to see it all happen. Producing around 10,000 litres of syrup each year, it’s a sweet experience to see the farm in action.

Using state-of-the-art technology in the form of a vacuum system, you won’t find those typical collection buckets here. With about 20km of tubing all connected to a main line, sap is pulled from the tree and into a vacuum sealer- a real sight to see!

This new system ensures no damage to the trees AND efficient sap collection. After all it takes about 40 litres of sap for just 1 litre of maple syrup. Time is of the essence!

Think you’d like to see it? Head out to Sandy Flats Sugar Bush during maple season and be sure to take in Warkworth’s Maple Festival while you’re at it. You’ll get to enjoy tours of the sugar bush, live music, horse-drawn wagon rides, maple taffy and even see some of the traditional ways that maple syrup was made.
