Sugaring season in Northern Indiana generally runs from early February through March. This time frame is totally weather dependant and may vary. We love to have visitors, but do encourage you to call ahead and check on conditions in the sugarbush. Tours are available throughout the year by appointment or scheduled through the Noble County Visitors Bureau.

Maple Acres continues the family tradition of "sugaring" in Southeastern Noble County, Indiana. Over 60 years ago the Owen family began the springtime ritual of tapping sugar maples, gathering sap and boiling off in flat pans over a brick arch deep in the sugarbush. Although the equipment has been updated, Bill and Kim Owen, along with other family members (including granchildren Carter, Nate, Charlotte and Ava) continue the tradition today.
When the bitter cold of winter gives way to the mild days and cool nights of early spring, it's time for the new sugar season to begin. The fresh sap is gathered and evaporated without delay creating some of the best syrup in North America.
The 100%, all natural maple syrup is organically produced in the state-of-the art facility on the Owen homestead. Other delicious maple products availabe include pure maple cream, maple candy (traditional and chocolate covered maple creams) and pure maple sugar.
