Sugar Moon Farm is a working maple farm, woodlot and restaurant.
In 1994 Scott Whitelaw and Quita Gray met Bob Williams, owner of Boondock Maple Products & Pancake House, who was ready to pass the farm on to someone who would continue making maple syrup. They completed a two-year apprenticeship, learning the crafts of maple sugaring and horse logging before taking over the property.
The Grays have lived on the farm with their family for over 20 years, making a living on the farm and sharing their love for all things maple with visitors from all over the world, year round.
They produce quality foodstuffs in a manner that supports local agriculture and community, and respects land and water. They buy locally, sort and compost all kitchen waste and their public washrooms are on a composting system.
Sugar Moon Farm also features an award-winning restaurant, a gift shop with maple and other local maritime products and hiking on the nearby historical Rogart Mountain Trail. This 6.2k wilderness trail is maintained by the Cobequid Eco-Trails Society. You can check out Jane’s Falls and the foundations of the original maple farms, dating back to the mid-1800s.
