Windlee Farms Maple Syrup

Tiny Township's Windlee Maple Syrup among the best in the country

Peter and Anne Lorriman of Tiny Township had a banner year with their WindLee Maple Syrup. It won first prize at both the Royal Winter Fair and the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers Association
WindLee Farms Maple Syrup of Tiny Township won the gold medal for its Amber syrup at the Royal Winter Fair.
The best maple syrup in the country comes from a Tiny Township maple syrup producer.
Maple syrup from Windlee Farms won first place at The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, which brings together the top agricultural producers from across Canada.
Windlee Maple Syrup also won Best in Show with the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers Association this year.
“We did well this year. It gives us bragging rights for a year,” said Peter Lorriman, co-owner.
When Windlee was announced as the Royal winner in the amber category, Peter was “off the ceiling” with excitement, Anne Lorriman said.
The couple have been producing maple syrup from their own maple bush on their 150-acre farm since 1992.
So what makes their syrup so good?
For one thing, Peter makes syrup from tapped sap within 24 hours, usually within 12.
The “craft” syrup is produced in small batches, using the best of old and new methods.
The Lorrimans sell syrup from their Baseline Road North farm (last farm on the left). Windlee Maple Syrup is also available at Rawson’s Meat & Deli , Larder & Pantry in Penetanguishene, Mad Craving.
