The 825 tap Barkley family sugarbush is located 8km south of Chesterville. Four generations have been involved since 1974. Our sugar bush combines honoured traditions with new technology-step back in time as you see and smell maple syrup being made on the wood-fired evaporator in our 1860’s log building. Maples are only one part of this special forest -resident pileated woodpeckers, nesting barred owls, and towering hemlocks are present. Our wildlife and bird-friendly sugarbush is managed sustainably and tapped carefully so that future generations can continue to enjoy it.
