    Maplewood Farm, Nova Scotia

    I had too much to say in my last post about the maple syrup farm.

    What a great place Maplewood Farm is and what a welcoming family Rex Veinot, his wife and son are. It seemed appropriate that Rex’s name meant ‘king’ while our name  is ‘Queen’, but we didn’t know that his son’s name Ryan, meant ‘little king’.

    Visitors are shown around the sugar shed and everything is explained and demonstrated.

    Not only does the family run this maple syrup business, they also have a Christmas tree farm and take great pride in managing the woodland. As you can see they won the 2009 award .

    Everyone is welcome to walk the trails through the forest and enjoy it – at any time of the year. It gives you a good feeling to find someone who does not put up ‘Private’ and ‘Keep out’ signs. There are Christmas trees of all sizes, from tiny to huge.

     

    Although the deciduous trees were not in leaf yet we saw some interesting birch trees, with beautiful bark. I think this might be the yellow birch.

     

    Rex even told us about a cabin they have in the wood where we could stay if we wanted.

    It’s rustic, but cosy.

     

    This was a really great place to visit and I hope that Rex Veinot and his family have lots of visitors.
