Sugarbush near Toronto

oohlala Mar 12, 2007 11:52 PM

Any sugarbush farm near toronto that serve unlimited pancakes with good maple syrup? I know Elmira is having one on March 30th, but are there any ones that are closer?

Do all of these places offer maple syrup demonstration and tours around the farm?

              I second McLean Berry Farm... We always enjoy it... 'course, we only live 15 minutes away, but it's worth the drive!

              Here's a link from the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. No unlimited pancakes, but lots of (almost free) education and demos about sugaring-off. I think that the two closest parks are Kortright and Bruce's Mill. http://www.trca.on.ca/parks_and_cultu...

              The festival at Elora, and other local towns would be more likely to have all-you-can eat pancakes etc.
