Maple Syrup Supplies
Collecting maple sap is a sustainable process that can be done by anyone with a healthy, mature maple tree and a willingness to get outdoors. Is there anything better than the natural taste of sweet homemade maple syrup on your pancakes? We sure don’t think so! That's why we carry an extensive supply of premium-quality maple syrup tapping supplies as well as a wide selection of containers and spiles.
If you're a seasoned maple syrup maker, or tapping your very first tree, you can shop with us for your supplies. Our maple sugaring products are durable and constructed to withstand a variety of Canadian weather conditions and made to last. Learn more about the sugaring process below. If you have any questions, visit us at our Eganville store.

Tapping Your Trees
February & March
Using freshly cleaned equipment, tap the tree by drilling a hole relative to your spile slightly upwards and inserting the spile by gently tapping the spile into the tree with a hammer. Next, hang your bucket and attach a lid.
Collect Sap & Make Syrup
February, March & April
Collect and store your sap daily as it is flowing. Use cheesecloth to filter out foreign material. Boil your sap until it turns golden in colour and transfer it to a smaller pot. Continue to boil your sap until it takes on a syrup consistency. Remove it from the heat and use a filter as many times as needed to remove any sediment. Finally, bottle your syrup!
When the outside temperatures return to above freezing, it's time to stop collecting sap. Remove your taps, buckets and lids from the tress and clean your equipment. Store your supplies for next year in a dry, dust-free location and enjoy your fresh, organic homemade syrup!
