The Lunch Box: A Sap Experience

Unit price per

Welcome to the Nor'Wester Maple Company's sugarbush! 

The Scene

After a steady hike through the boreal forest, you have finally reached the sugar maples connected by a crisscrossing network of tap lines. These blue and black lines are carrying sap to the evaporator shack where it will be boiled down into maple syrup. The smell of fire greets you as you sit down and dig in to your packed lunch. But this isn't just any packed lunch, it is one that is well considered. 

The Lunch Experience

We have partnered with the Nor'Wester Maple Company in the Neebing Township and Thunder Bay's newest lunch spot, Nomad Bakeshop & Sandwich Bar, to offer you a very local lunch using maple as an ingredient to connect you to the sugar shack experience from the comfort of your home. 

While we can't bring you to the sugar shack this year, we can definitely bring the sugar to you in all of its sensory glory. So what's included?

Sap Hot Chocolate Kit

Yup, that's right. We're bringing down freshly tapped sap from the Nor'Wester Maple Company's operation and bottling it for you to taste and boil at home. This sweet treat will transport you to a place we guarantee you've never been before.
