Sugar Moon Farm in Earltown has received numerous accolades in recent years and now it can add one more to its list.
The travel site Expedia.ca has rated Earltown as one of the Best Places to Experience Winter in Canada , in part because of the services offered by Sugar Moon Farm.
This is what the travel blog has to say about Sugar Moon Farm and the Earltown area:
“Some of us are Julia Child in the kitchen. Some of us keep fire extinguishers as handy as the pizza delivery number. But one thing we can agree on is that there are few things that beat freshly made pancakes swimming in maple syrup. Follow the maple trees to the magical Sugar Moon Farm. This family-run farm offers tours, all-day maple brunch, and sweet gifts. You can also enjoy traditional syrup on snow if you get there before the last day of February.”
Quita Gray, co-owner of Sugar Moon Farm, said the most “awesome” thing about the article for her was seeing Earltown ranked among such other more well-known attractions as Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario and other sites in other large Canadian cities.
“That was what struck me the most. And I just love that Earltown is getting put on the map. And then they talked about the (Earltown General) store too, right?” she said. “So, that’s exactly the way we would want to brand our community, I think.”
Readers of the blog are encouraged to “Stop into the Earltown General Store, which it describes as having a “nostalgic feel straight out of a Bing Crosby movie” and to “go snowshoeing at the exquisite Gully Lake Wilderness Area.”
Gray said she loved seeing the positive spin put on the area and believes visitors who come will realize it can live up to those expectations.
“We really appreciate it, always,” she said. “And I just think it demonstrates what world class destinations we have in Nova Scotia and, then, how a small community can really draw people.”
Currently Sugar Moon Farm is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. It will also be open on Dec. 27, 28, 29 and 30 but is closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
