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, Sliding Hills In New Brunswick, and more.
In 2023, we have an updated list of Maple Sugar Camps and Maple Syrup Producers, to help you to support local New Brunswick producers.
What makes visiting a sugar camp so fun? Sometimes, there is a pancake breakfast involved, with many opportunities to try maple syrup and other maple 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 in New Brunswick.
We created this list back in 2018 and update it each season with the current information.
