Shirley’s Scribbles – Fall 2020

Shirley Fulton-Deugo
By Shirley Fulton, 4th Generation Owner

A big hello to all our amazing customers.  We missed seeing many of you during our spring season.  It has been great to receive your kind emails, phone calls and orders of maple syrup.  You just had to make your own pancakes!

I would like to update you with what our family and Fulton’s has been doing.

Firstly, our family is all well.  Scott, Brenda and the boys (Triple Trouble) were on their own this year for most of our maple syrup production.  We had a great crop and for those who like Golden or Very Dark, this was a special year for you.   Because of all the changes to our business, we are selling 4L jugs this year.  A great way to ensure a supply of maple syrup for your family.

Scott has been expanding, changing, upgrading and widening our trails for better access to groom and enjoy them this winter.  Fulton’s new website and online store (soon to be available) has been an exciting project with local pros from our area:  Dagne Forrest (Foil Media), Emma Brown and Amber Campbell (Amber Campbell Photography.)  We are excited with our new branding by Maggie Mitchell Creative Design and Pxlworks Digital Printing.  I hope you like our updated look.

My favourite season, Fall, has arrived and with it an exciting announcement!  Starting Saturday, September 26th and every Saturday and Sunday from 10 am – 3 pm (until November 1st) we will be serving pancakes on the porch at the Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm.  Outdoor tables will be available to enjoy pancakes, sausages, maple baked beans and of course maple syrup.   The weather may be crisp so dress to enjoy the beautiful Fall weather.   Another treat will be our maple taffy and maple cotton candy.  Fulton’s maple products will be available at the Tree Farm so do get your Christmas shopping done early.  We so appreciate you helping our family businesses.  We will be happy to organize shipping for any gifts headed across Canada and the United States.   As well, please note that Fulton’s Online (or phone) orders will be available for pickup at the Tree Farm during their weekend hours.

Come and enjoy the Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm and their beautiful property.  They will also be offering wagon rides. 

Our faithful customers have supported our business and we THANK YOU.  Our 2021 Maple Spring Season will happen in some format – stay tuned to our Facebook page, website and newsletters for updates.  Our 400 acre backyard will be ready for your family.

Sweet maple wishes to you!
