$9 for Maple-Farm Tour for Two ($19 Value)

Pairs take wagon rides (a $7 value each) to the maple farm's sugar bush, where they can watch and learn about the process of making real syrup. This deal includes a 40-millilitre bottle of syrup in a maple-leaf-shaped bottle to take home (a $5 value). Choose one of the following dates: Saturday, February 23; Sunday, February 24; Saturday March 2; Sunday March 3.

Shady Grove Maple Co.

When Dan and Heather Goetz first started bottling maple syrup, their efforts were humble. A standard harvest included the use of about 100 pails and generated around 25 gallons of the saccharine nectar—barely enough to cover a single waffle. Today, the couple process sap from 11 woodlots, using modern vacuum-tubing systems to process nearly 2,200 gallons of maple sap each hour.

Open to the public on weekends until April 20th, the farm hosts pancake breakfasts, family-friendly tours, and wagon rides (no booking necessary) to the sugar bush where visitors can whisper sweet nothings to woo sappy trees. Before guests browse the maple-centric goodies sold at the Maple Shoppe, the Goetz's invite them to also visit the farm's new petting zoo and nature trail.
