Sugar Moon Farm is a working maple syrup farm, woodlot and restaurant. We produce quality food in a manner that supports local agriculture and community and respects land & water. To this end, we buy locally, use a composting system for our public washrooms and employ draft horse power on our farm.
A member of Taste Nova Scotia, Sugar Moon Farm has received regional and provincial tourism awards and national recognition. In 2009 Sugar Moon Farm was selected as one of the top 10 Sugar Shacks in Canada by Canadian Geographic Travel Magazine and in 2011 was selected by Fodor’s Travel Guide as one of the top destinations in Atlantic Canada. Most recently we have been honored by being rated one of “Canada’s Top Pancakes” in the Canadian Living Magazine – March 2013 edition.
Come and enjoy a locally-inspired all-day maple brunch in our log 56-seat restaurant and be sure to take in a free tour and maple tasting in our working sugar camp then enjoy maple shopping in our gift shop.
