Rocky Lake Birchworks 9:15 AM
Rocky Lake Birchworks started as a retirement project to keep Alan and Johanna McLauchlan busy; however, their ‘little project’ has now grown into a commercial business. Johanna, Alan and their two sons, Andy and Peter, began experimenting with birch syrup in their garage in 2004 with 15 trees. Now they have 1500 trees and have been on the market since 2010. Rocky Lake Birchworks is primarily a wholesale business that produces birch syrup, however they are also branching out into other boreal forest products, such as Chaga mushrooms. They currently have two types of birch syrup; pure and breakfast blend they sell across Canada.
