About Us

Our Founder, Bernt Gilbertson, arrived on St Joseph Island from Norway as a young boy. Bernt married a local girl, Rose Hawdon, and together they built a life and raised a family.

In 1936 Bernt decided to try his hand at producing Maple Syrup. It wasn’t long until he saw an opportunity to expand and market his product. Thus began what is today, Gilbertson’s Maple Products.

Our passion…

is making quality maple syrup that is a result of decades of dedication and experience.

“Yum! Great service and food. Fun things to do while we waited. I know this is a pancake house but the French toast and maple sausage were amazing!!! 11 out of 11 people at our table were happy & full. Thank you.”

A group of us from Agero went out for Breakfast this morning… The french toast was like eating a cinnamon bun, the sausage was very good. The waitress was very kind and efficient. The interior was very inviting and warm. We were able to take a quick tour of the operations. Overall …. we will make the trip again next year !”

“Love the French Toast and baked beans to die for…. definitely a sugar high when l left the place yesterday. Got our bottle of maple syrup for this year.”
