10th Anniversary

Kemble Maple Tour

A sweet day out for the whole family

A full day of fun awaits!

 

On Saturday, April 13th, 2019,  join us for the 10th annual Kemble Maple Syrup Tour!

Visit one or all of this year's tour stops to experience the unique methods of maple syrup production, from small-scale to commercial, used to make some of Canada’s finest maple syrup. While touring, get up close to friendly farm animals, stop by the Big Bay General Store for some old fashioned hospitality and treats, stop by the arena for the artisan market and Family Fun Zone and of course enjoy our famous, homemade, maple-themed meal.

A day of unforgettable family fun awaits you!

The tour takes place in and around Kemble, Ontario, a picturesque village nestled at the base of Kemble Mountain. Kemble is just 15 minutes north of Owen Sound and 15 minutes east of Wiarton.

Tour stops

Kemble Mountain Maple Products

We use the south-facing slope of Kemble Mountain to gather sap by gravity.

The sap from 700 taps is boiled on a wood-fired 4 x 12’ forced air evaporator using a steam preheater.

We love to answer your questions about maple.
