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 3400 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 fed by a reverse osmosis machine. Come and see it and the 1874 barn which houses it.
Feel the heat of the wood fire on your face as we stoke the evaporator. Taste warm, fresh syrup and enjoy the intense maple flavour of taffy on snow. Take a trip to our sugar bush and watch the sap pour into the tanks.
Don’t forget to buy your supply of fresh syrup!
