Tap to Table

  • Saturday, February 29, 2020, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

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

Learn about the process of making syrup by helping drill and tap 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, head over to Barnyard Bites to enjoy fresh and hot pancakes with pure maple syrup*! Pancakes are included in admission!

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