Linlor Farm and Forest
We are a 5th generation Maple Syrup producing family making pure maple products on our 300 acre property, on the North Shore of Rice Lake in Peterborough County. We currently have about 1000 taps, with many more available trees in the sugar bush to expand our business in the future. Most of our sap is collected using gravity fed pipelines, with only a small portion still being collected using buckets. We boil our sap using the wood cut from the farm on a stainless steel, wood fired evaporator. Our sales of maple syrup, sugar and butter consist of our loyal customer base at the farm gate and at a few local events within the community of Asphodel Norwood. Custom sawmilling is also available on the farm.

The honey bees from Otonabee Apiary pollinate local flora and gather nectar from the fields, forests and wetlands east of Peterborough, providing delicious & flavourful honeys. All of our honey is 'As the Bee Makes It!’ , raw & unpasteurized, and is bottled as a liquid, creamed or in the comb. We offer a few prepared products, for the discerning palette - honey butter, infusions and honey lemonade, as well we have a selection of handmade candles made from our beeswax. Please come visit us at the Market. We love questions and we love to answer them!
