Cleon and Martha Martin (Mount Forest, ON)
491233 Southgate SideRoad 49, Mount Forest, ON
When you drive into Martha and Cleon’s farm, you are immediately met with the sight of a quaint family home, the sweet smell of hay and fresh country air, and the sound of dairy cows singing the day away. The six wintry weeks of maple syrup production they have each year is just a brief morsel of sugary sweetness for the Martin’s; their day to day is the world of dairy farming.
But that doesn’t stop them from having some of the best local maple syrup we have to offer! Martin and Cleon’s brand new maple syrup facility (a short tractor ride away from their homestead) is a far cry from the days they spent collecting sap in buckets by horseback. Now, they have a complex system of 1700 taps gathering sap to turn into that amber gold we love so much. Available in two grades (Light and Dark) it is the perfect sweetener for a hearty breakfast, a decadent dessert, or a little extra something in your morning coffee!
