March means Maple Syrup, Sugar Camps, Maple Candy, Maple Cones and lots of other yummy treats!
As a local Moncton family lifestyle blog, we are sharing family-friendly activities around New Brunswick, like our Sleigh Rides in NB, Outdoor Skating In Moncton, Winter Festivals In New Brunswick and more. Here is the 2021 updated list of Maple Sugar Camps and Maple Syrup Producers for you to support locally in New Brunswick.
What makes visiting a sugar camp so fun? Sometimes, there is a pancake breakfast involved, with lots of opportunities to try maple syrup and other products. Often times the producers allow you to walk the property, visit and experience the process of boiling the sap to create the maple syrup and try some samples. Below you will find a list of the Maple Sugar Camps and maple syrup producers we know of in New Brunswick. If you know of any we forgot, please let us know so we can add their info.
***2021 UPDATE: Please visit linked sites to confirm up-to-date details on dates, services, and pricing. Due to the provincial health guidelines, there may be changes in plans for each business.
