Maple: The Taste of Spring!

New Brunswick is one of the world’s top maple syrup producers and we love celebrating the annual harvest.

The frosty nights and warm, sunny days of March and April coax our world-famous maple sap to run just in time for a traditional New Brunswick sugaring-off party at one of our local sugar shacks. Plan a visit this spring and you’ll find plenty of ways to satisfy your sweet tooth! 

Here are just a few of the authentic sugar bushes you can visit around the province.
