  • This event has passed.

March 26 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

Have you ever wondered how maple syrup is made?

A visit to Niagara’s maple syrup bushes is an absolute must for any Niagara winter itinerary. The best time to visit Agape is during in March when the 148 acres of pristine, forested, Effingham landscape are bustling with visitors taking tours and eating stacks of pancake dripping in one of nature’s best sugars.

Agape boasts great hiking trails, where a network of lines tapped to the maple trees run the sap to the reverse osmosis machine in the processing room. All of this is explained during tours of the property, where you can also learn about the history of maple syrup.

 

Take a tour of the of the sugar bush and learn how maple syrup is made. Then visit the pancake house – each student gets a voucher for  breakfast.
