School children arrive at the farm of Alfred Raby, near Thurso, P.Q. Many teachers from surrounding districts take their students on field trips during "sugaring-off" to acquaint them with the many steps involved in preparing this native product. Last year production of maple products totalled 2,300,000 gallons of syrup and 817,000 pounds of sugar.
