Hosts: The Williams Family; John and Suzanne, sons Jack and Oliver, parents Howard and Judith
Williams Farm is owned by John and Suzanne Williams. It’s operated by John with some help from the rest of the family, Kim Kerr, and several local staff members. John spent his teenage years helping his parents make syrup from 130 taps. That early experience created a passion for Maple and it brought him back to making syrup in 2001. Now we have 3000 taps in 55 acres of maple bush located on the edge of the Wye Marsh, just south of Midland, ON.
Our trees produce thousands of litres of sap each day during the season. Pipelines bring the sap to two collection points and our 4000-litre tanker pulls the sap to the sugar house. The heart of our system is a modern wood-fired evaporator. Come and see it and the 1874 barn which houses it.
If the weather allows us to make syrup, you can breathe the wonderful aroma of hot syrup and sample it hot off the evaporator. We’ll also be making maple taffy on snow. Enjoy a self-guided tour of our bush. Bring your snow shoes if we still have snow! You can also see a display of the latest maple syrup equipment and supplies as we are a Maple equipment dealer as well.
Don’t forget to buy your supply of fresh syrup!
