Freezing nights in the 20s and warm days in the 40s - it is maple sugaring season! Throughout the month of March we invite everybody to join our maple sugaring tours. Come visit the Farm and explore the history and artifacts of maple sugaring from Native American to Colonial to modern times. Learn about the science of sugaring, visit our tapped sugar maples, sip some sap while it drips into the bucket, and stop by the sugar shack where sap is boiled down into delicious syrup. Boiling and sap flow is entirely weather dependent. But whether or not we're boiling, our tours offer a fascinating glimpse into a New England tradition.
We welcome families, scouts, and all other groups to join us for this wonderful season!
