Syrup making has been a family tradition that started by our Grandfather in the mid 1940's. McLachlan Brothers Nelson, Colin and Lawrence revived the family tradtion of making syrup about 1980 by tapping a small number of road side trees. By 1990 the small operation had turned into a commercial operation. In 1992, a name change from McLachlan Brothers to Fort Rose Maple Company accompanied by the new Sugar House and Pancake House to better server our growing business.
The operation has grown into a 4400 plus tap operation. We use both pails and pipe line for collecting sap. The sap is boiled on a 5 x 14 wood fired evaporator. The Sugar House is located up at the farm yard for easy access.
