Taste of Pontiac: Maple Syrup from Muddy Hands Winery

Categories: 

Spring is officially here, and the sap has started flowing!

Maple Syrup is available at Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, located at 1965 Route 148 -- at the two lanes in Luskville.

Watch for our signs on the 148.

$11 for 1/2 Litre
$20 for 1 Litre.

Guaranteed to be free of any contaminents, and completely lead free -- which is commonly present in most "backyard" maple productions. 

Government tested and inspected.

This year, we've extended our Maple syrup production significantly -- partnering with a local company that boils off the sap and packages it for us with all the necessary (and legal) nutritional information.

As always, our products are of high quality.  

Who are we?

The name of our farm, Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, is named from the simple belief that amazing things come with passion, love, and hard work(tm).  We continue to strive to provide amazing quality products for your family -- directly from ours.

We know you will enjoy them as much as we do.

Many are aware that we've been selling quality farm related products here for a couple years -- fresh eggs, organic turkey and chickens, honey, beeswax candles, etc.

We've also planted our first vineyard in the spring of 2013, and you can expect some very interesting surprises from us in the coming years.  Pay attention, because something very exciting is coming to the Pontiac!

Please note: our store front hasn't been built yet, and the products are sold from the farm gate -- directly from our home.

The MRC des Collines de Gatineau is comprised of 7 municipalities. The smallest Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette is small enough to be exempt from complying with the Provincial Residuals Strategy. The two most densely populated, Cantley and Chelsea, have respectively 83 and 60 people per square kilometre. These two municipalities also have the highest median household income by a considerable margin.

The Québec residual materials management strategy includes a progressive reduction and eventually a “ban” of organic material from municipal landfills by 2020.  Municipalities who comply with the policy are eligible for funding to help offset the costs.   The Municipality of Pontiac has responded by passing a resolution to initiate door to door collection with costs paid for by the residents.
