We said goodbye to a dear friend today… Pat Kilroy passed away on July 26, 2014 after battling with liver cancer. Pat did sleigh rides with his horses at our sugarbush for years (starting possibly in 2005?). Pat was an amazing guy who lived life to it’s fullest. When he […]

Goodbye Pat

We had our last boil shortly after the Powassan Maple Syrup Festival. It was a late season, but still a good one! We are almost done washing the lines now, and the North Bay Farmer’s Market starts next weekend (May 17th). We will have a booth at both the Saturday […]

Season’s Over

Tomorrow (Saturday April 26th) is the 17th Annual Powassan Maple Syrup Festival! We’ll have a booth downtown in our usual spot and there will be free bus rides again from town up to our sugar shack. Come on up to enjoy some maple taffy, go for a horse-drawn wagon ride […]

March Break

We’ve got new horses this year! We’re hoping to have two teams whenever it’s busy so that hopefully people don’t have to wait too long for a ride. Tony Riley is here with his set of Clydesdales, Sadie and Blossom, and Jody Logan is here with his Belgians, Rex and Rock. Pat Kilroy […]

Come Meet the New Horses!

Saturday, March 8th is the Official Tapping Ceremony at Matthews Maple Syrup! We will have two teams of horses giving sleigh rides through the sugarbush, we will do taffy on the ice, and although it’s still too cold for the sap to run (will this winter ever end?), and just […]
