One of Pakenham’s other claims to fame is its maple industry. It is home to Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bush (pictured below), which produces an abundance of maple syrup and has a restaurant and a gift shop (at which tons of maple products can be bought, including beauty products made with authentic maple sap, syrup, sugar, or sugar sand!) Be sure to check out the web site for Fulton’s.
