Sugar Moon Farm began in 1973 as Boondock Maple Products + Pancake House, owned and operated by Bob Williams.
When we met Bob in 1994, he was ready to pass on the farm to someone who would continue making maple syrup on the property. We commenced a 2-year apprenticeship, learning the crafts of maple sugaring and horse logging.
In 1996, we took over the farm and renamed it Sugar Moon Farm. We expanded the restaurant over the winter of 2000/01 and have been open year round ever since, celebrating this Great Canadian Experience in all four seasons.
Sugar Moon Farm is a working maple farm, woodlot and restaurant. We produce quality food in a manner that supports local agriculture and community and respects land and water. To this end, we buy locally, sort and compost all kitchen waste and use a composting system for our public washrooms.
Scott and Quita are long time members of Slow Food International. Sugar Moon Farm is a member of Taste Nova Scotia and has received provincial and regional awards.
Our home is located just below the sugar woods and our lives are steeped in maple - we don't go a day without eating it. And after all these years, we remain spellbound by the magical process of making maple syrup.
We gratefully acknowledge that we live in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People.
Come visit us! We can’t wait to share our passion for the taste and magic of maple. Scott, Quita and Family
