You are invited to indulge in delightful maple products and to savour a traditional sugar shack meal offered at the rustic and charming Handfield Maplery, located in the heart of Saint-Marc-sur-Richelieu country side. The Maplery comprises three halls, each boasting a wood burning fireplace, welcoming families and groups up to 350 people.
This jewel of the Richelieu Valley in the Montérégie region is built on a 42-acre centennial sugar bush in which more than 2,000 maple trees are tapped. In the center of the shack, visitors can also observe the evaporator where sap is transformed into syrup using the same know-how of yesteryears.
You can even bring a taste of the Maplery home as an array of maple products and signature dishes from the Auberge Handfield are readily available for sale on site.
From September to February, the Maplery can be reserved privately for holiday parties, weddings, corporate events, fundraising dinners, family reunions and more.
Facing the parking lot, the pedestrian trail takes you to the sugar shack in a 7 minutes walk. Shuttle sleigh rides between the parking and La Cabane from 8:30am to 8pm on Saturday and Sunday.
