Top Tips for Visiting Sugar Moon Farm
in the Sugar Season
1. Check our sugar season hours (we're open weekends + holidays year round + daily in summer ) We don't take reservations during these hours. We will, however, take reservations on some weekdays if you book the all inclusive Maple Magic pkg. Call first before setting out to make sure we are open - weather can be very different up here!
2. Check in with the host outside as soon as you arrive. The host is usually just outside the door with a clipboard. Put your name on the list for a table in the dining room. Pick up our "sugar season hand book" for everything you need to know about your visit. Make sure you sign up for a guided tour of our sugar camp. Then take off and explore! You could even go to Earltown General Store, or Tatamagouche Brewing Company and come back!
3. If you've got mobility issues or small children/infants in your group, tell the hostess. You can drop your guests closer to the building while you go park. And we reserve some space inside weather for sitting + breastfeeding . Just know that it's much quieter on weekdays; this might be a better option for very elderly + more vulnerable visitors.
4. Dress for winter! We're usually snowier than anywhere else and we've got great trails to snowshoe or hike. And if it's a nice day, and we're boiling, there may be a wait for a table - being dressed for outside is key! Bring snowshoes if you have them!
5. Go for a woods hike or snowshoe. You don't want to miss this part of your experience. We rent snowshoes - reserve ahead or by chance. Ask staff about the great trails. Check TRAIL CONDITIONS. Know the trails before you set out - it is easy to get lost in the woods. Ask staff for assistance. Read about the trails in the "sugar season hand book" on site.
6. Have a dog? We are a working farm with livestock protection dogs and electric fences. Remember that...
• all dogs MUST be on lead at all times (trail or not)
• No dogs on the farm trails (any trails behind the building or up toward our house on the Alex MacDonald Road
• Pick up after you dog and take with – we do not have disposal on site
