Sugar Moon Farm is a working maple syrup farm, with a sugar bush and restaurant.  We produce quality food in a manner that supports local agriculture, the community and the environment.  We buy local ingredients, 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.

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.  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.

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.

We are an accessible property and welcome group and educational tours.  Visa, MasterCard and Debit are accepted.
