The Fulton family is now in it’s sixth generation of maple sugar farming in Cedar Hill. The Fulton brothers emigrated to Canada from Scotland in the 1840’s. It is assumed that they learned the art of maple syrup making from other settlers and the aboriginal people.
In the 1960’s, Leonard Fulton (3rd generation) built the first pancake house to serve light refreshments to visitors.
The sugarbush is 400 acres of mixed forest (mostly sugar maple trees), a 120-seat restaurant, gift shoppe, maple sugar production facility and main office. In 1985, the family decided to focus exclusively on maple trees.
The Fulton Pancake House and Sugar Bush has grown from a small personal production sugar camp to the four season destination that it is today. Group tours, corporate retreats & camps, banquets, forest membership programs, and the traditional spring maple syrup season bring many visitors from all over the world.
Open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. and by appointment or by chance on other days. (Call 613.256.3867).
