Sugar Moon Farm helps put Earltown on the Ex­pe­dia.ca travel blog map

Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY - BY HARRY SUL­LI­VAN

Sugar Moon Farm in Earltown has re­ceived nu­mer­ous ac­co­lades in re­cent years and now it can add one more to its list.

e travel site Ex­pe­dia.ca has rated Earltown as one of the Best Places to Ex­pe­ri­ence Win­ter in Canada , in part be­cause of the ser­vices o ered by Sugar Moon Farm.

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.

“ at 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.”

is 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 re 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. is fam­ily-run farm o ers 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.”

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., Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day. It will also be open on Dec. 27, 28, 29 and 30 but is closed Dec. 25-26 and Dec. 31-Jan. 1.
