Walt's Sugar Shack is owned and operated by Karen and Brian Walt. It is situated on the Earle Walt Farm on North Lakeside Dr. Consecon, Ontario. The shack is located on the north end of the farm facing Salem Rd.
The Earle Walt Farm is owned today by Brian?s parents John and Marion Walt and has been in the Walt family since the early 1800?s. John Butler Walt ( great grandfather) and Earle Walt (grandfather) farmed the woods and property taking care of the Maples for many years.
Brian and Karen enjoy having parents John and Marion Walt continue to be involved in the maple activities throughout the season. With their stories from the past about the bush and farm and John's knowledge of the bush we learn something new all the time.
The first sugar shack was built in 2000, using a tarp and fire-pit and gathering sap by pails with approx. 40 taps. A few years later using a wood fired homemade evaporator. In Aug of 2012 the Walt's Sugar Shack was doubled in size and finished both inside and out to its current state.
Today we have a total of over 1000 taps and a new wood fired evaporator that was installed for the 2013 syrup season.
We welcome past and new visitors from February till April and off season by appointments. Come and enjoy our new gift cabin, we have a variety of special maple gifts and baskets featuring our finest syrup.
