This is an up to date facility making very good syrup. 2017 was an especially good year. There are no restaurant facilities but it is interesting to visit it as the family that run it are very knowledgable.

I love to go to Fortune Farms during sugar season. Visiting with the Kettle Boys, the Shanty Men are highlights of our visits every year. We go there to learn and laugh. Everyone needs to go.

Great family place to walk the bugs and experience the maple syrup making. They have the most perfect butter tarts. You can purchase syrup and other stuff. Neat place for sure.
