Based on the real-life story of the Allaway family of Tantallon, Nova Scotia. Brian and Simmone Allaway started their backyard project with children Cara and Brian William in the 1980s, and as the popularity of their maple syrup grew, so did their small family business. Acadian Maple Products Ltd. has since developed into a large processing and retail facility with a world- wide distribution network. It employs twenty people and is still fully owned and operated by the Allaway family.
