You bet we’re thinking about it already! The great thaw and the equally great tradition that comes with it—sugaring time. The area around Saint-Hyacinthe has dozens of wonderful, warm, welcoming sugar shacks. That’s why we’re helping you out by sharing some of our top picks today. So get the whole family out there for an extra-sweet maple-sugary day to remember. Happy maple season!

  

Érablière L’Autre Versan

Sainte-Hélène-de-Bagot

Érablière L’Autre Versan is as friendly, warm, and welcoming as they come and the perfect place to enjoy a traditional sugaring-season meal. There’s even a spiffy shop with a wide selection of maple and fruity treats from syrup to jellies, dressings, pastries, and candy. Guaranteed to appeal to every member of the family.

We love: The friendly, welcoming shop with its great selection of maple and fruit products

There you have it—a few of our favourite sugar bushes in the Saint-Hyacinthe area. Bear in mind that local sugar bushes are already booking up fast. So don’t just stand there! Reserve yourself a day at the one that already has your taste buds trembling with anticipation. And happy sugaring!
