Maple’s Sweet Story
April 1, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Take a guided walk through the farm’s sugar bush. Learn how to pick the right tree, then watch how maple trees are tapped and sap is collected. Stop by the French and Native camps to hear and see how these techniques have changed through the years. Be sure to visit the sugar shack to see and smell the sap being boiled down into maple sugar. Taste a sample of maple syrup at the end of the tour. Maple sugar products will be available for sale and The Farmhouse Grille will have pancakes available for purchase as well. Tours begin every half hour, last approximately one hour and are entirely outdoors (Please dress appropriately!) No preregistration required.
