Sugar Moon Farm is a family-owned, 200 acre farm with a 2,500-tap maple syrup operation with a log restaurant.  Open year round (daily in July and August and weekends the rest of the year), visitors can immerse themselves in a delightful maple syrup experience. 

Taste some syrup during a tour of our working sugar camp before dining on one of the many delicious brunch meals in our 56-seat log restaurant, voted Taste of Nova Scotia's Restaurant of the Year for 2015. For a more elegant dining experience, be sure to attend a “Chef’s Night at Sugar Moon”.  Set in the glow of our large stone fireplace, this gourmet maple dining experience offered throughout the year features guest chefs, live music and wine tasting.

We offer guided sugar camp tours and maple tasting and shopping and specialize in customized group tours including culinary, agricultural, educational and ESL tours.  Sugar Moon Farm is also a great outdoor recreation destination with 30+ km of hiking and snowshoeing trails and some of the best snow conditions in Northern Nova Scotia. Make a day of your trip to Sugar Moon by hiking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing around the farm and along the Rogart Mountain Trail (6.2km), which starts at the parking lot; maps are available in the restaurant. Snowshoes are available for rent.

Sugar Moon Farm produces quality food in a manner that supports local agriculture, the community and the environment.  We purchase all our ingredients locally and use a composting system for our public washrooms.

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.
