Cabane à sucre

On Friday, we went to a maple sugar house. We had a breakfast with pancakes, maple syrup and orange juice. Delicious! Then, we went to visit the farm. We saw lots of animals (horses, pigs, and bunnies (one was only one week old), and geese and cows too!..) We had the chance to touch some of them and to feed them. It was lots of fun. Then, we went for a little walk to see how they tap the maple trees. We even tasted the sap coming out of the tree. They need 43 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. Then, we went inside the sugar house and the owner explained how they transform the sap into maple syrup. We learned a lot. -The Preschool, Kindergarten and Grade 1 students
