Willowtree Farm located just outside of Port Perry offered a quieter atmosphere than some of the larger Maple Syrup festival farms we have been to in Durham Region in the past years. It was great for small kids on a cold day since it's not that large and there isn't a lot of walking through the maple trees involved.

Ella's favorite part was warming up by the fire at the Sugar-shack and eating the marshmallows. After enjoying the outdoors and our wagon ride back to the main building, we took our time shopping in the store (they have small carts just for pint sized shoppers!). There are a tonne of products from the farm itself, as well as an array of other local items for sale. The maple cookies and cupcakes were just the perfect sweet ending to our adventures today.
