Rolling Ridge Maple Products is a family owned and operated business by 3 generations of Robson's which are dedicated to providing consumers with the first taste of spring year round.

We first made syrup on our home farm over 40 years ago gathering sap from about 25 trees and boiling it down in an old iron kettle. Today we have over 15000 taps all gathered by vacuum tubing with the sap processed using reverse osmosis and an oil fired evaporator.

The "sugar shanty" is located just west of Ilderton on the corner of Ilderton and Vanneck Road. Come take a look for yourself and see how its made. Have some pancakes and sausage at neighboring Vanneck church on weekends in March, and smell the sweet sweet smell of maple syrup!

Arva Flour Mill

Phone: 519-660-0199 or 1-877-630-2296 (Toll Free)
www.arvaflourmill.com

Arva Flour Mill, located in the quaint village of Arva, Ontario, was built in 1819 on the banks of the Medway Creek. It is Canada's oldest continuously operating water powered flour mill and perhaps the oldest in North America.

Today when you visit, the constant whir of the water powered turbines reminds you that this is not just another pretty and obsolete old mill. For the most part, it operates virtually the same way it did in the early part of the previous century, with half the mill still running on water power; the rest on electricity.
