Maple Syrup/ Sugar making has always been about using the technology/ equipment available, as new technology became available most syrup producers adopted those methods.

Honouring Land and Knowledge
We acknowledge that this area has been inhabited by Indigenous peoples from the beginning, having a rich history and modern traditions of many First Nations and Metis. We would like to acknowledge and thank the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation for sharing their treaty lands and territory with us.
Bronte Creek Provincial Park is located within the bounds of the Head of the Lake Treaty #14 and the 12-mile Treaty #22, agreed upon by the Mississaugas of the Credit and the British crown in 1806 and 1820 respectively.
We acknowledge that the creation of maple syrup was learned from Anishinaabe people who call this land home. Ziigwan, as early spring is known in Anishinaabemowin, is a celebratory time of gratitude that aligns with the maple sap collection season.
Please join us as we continue to learn, respect, and appreciate; the seasons, nature, and humans.
