Come join us for a Maple Syrup Making event on the Farm!

Learn how to make syrup by drilling and tapping our maple trees and hanging buckets to collect the sap. Everyone can watch how the sugaring process happens, and kids of all ages will have fun making “Sugar on Snow”. Enjoy a wagon ride on our “Syrup Express” for a quick visit to our farm animals. Then, gather around a campfire to eat fresh, homemade pancakes with pure maple syrup*!

*real syrup takes time to make… we’ll have pre-made maple syrup on hand as well!

FOUR sessions to choose from!
