Description

James Lawson Swan started it all; Around 1870 James started making maple syrup for his family at the family homestead.
All of his sons (Wilfred, Eugene, and Charlie) helped out making and continued making maple syrup on their own even after James's death.

James's son Charlie bought the property up the road and that is the property where our sugar woods is now located. Charlie then sold this property to his nephew James Gratto Swan.

In 1971 Jim and his brother Alec (Alexander) started tapping on the new sugar woods. The sap was collected in sap cans and carried to the camp in milk cans. (Much fun was had by all. *wink wink*) All of the family helped out and the sap was boiled on a flat bottom pan and the syrup was finished in a cast iron pan.
