Visit to the Kettle Boys at Fortune Farms
with Brunch at Temple’s Sugar Camp Restaurant
Saturday March 21st
Note: This trip is dependent on the sap flowing at that time. If in doubt, call Colin at 264-2609.
The Suggested Itinerary
10:00am Leave Tim Horton’s on Dufferin Street (#7) by car ~ you may want to travel with others.
10:30am Arrive at Temple’s and proceed to back loft to have brunch together. Tell them you are from Probus. If you select the group brunch (multiples of 4 or 6 people), the cost will be about $10 a person. This will be the only expense for the day, unless you choose to buy some maple syrup products. After brunch, go next door to see how Temple’s make maple syrup. Tell Andrew “Colin sent you”.
11:30ish Leave for Fortune Farms
Noon-ish Arrive at Fortune Farms and enter main building near parking lot. Tell the Fortunes “Colin sent you.” Their maple syrup and syrup products are excellent if you are in the mood to buy. Ask to see their modern evaporator. Then walk up the trail following the Kettle Boy's signs. Stop off en route to see how the Shanty Men make their syrup. Proceed further along to see the Kettle Boys and be prepared to have some fun. (Note: this is not a long walk, but you will need good boots.)
2:00ish (or whenever the mood strikes) leave for home
2:45ish Arrive back in Perth (hopefully happier and definitely sweeter).
