Sweet Sugar Mmon Farm photo essay by Kelley Edwards

Sugar Moon Farm is a maple farm that rests in the Nova Scotia community of Earltown. It is surrounded by the Cobequid Mountains which provides the perfect back drop for 2500 taps, a log sugar camp and restaurant that is open year round.

Owners Scott Whitelaw and Quita Gray have worked hard to make Sugar Moon Farm a very special place, offering delicious maple products and a fantastic brunch in a log cabin setting. But they have also diversified what would normally be a seasonal business to one that operates year round.

Trails have been cut into the woods to provide hiking trails that can be accessed any time of the year. Supporting the local economy is important to Scott and Quita so they buy locally in order to produce quality food in a manner that supports local agriculture and community while respecting the land and water.

Of course, the highlight of the year is sugar season, when the sap is running and boiled down to make delicious products. Is there anything more Canadian than maple syrup? Well, possibly "sugar on snow" in which warm sweet sticky syrup is poured over snow and then rolled up onto sticks to make a delicious treat.
