As winter ends, it’s maple sugaring time! Visit us to see, learn and, most importantly, TASTE! Learn how to identify and tap sugar maple trees, discover sugaring techniques used by Native Americans, pioneers, and modern-day farmers, see an evaporator in action, and finish by participating in our taste test challenge to see if you can tell the difference between maple-flavored syrup and the real thing!

Sugarbush Tours: 11:00am, 1:00pm, and 2:00pm: A one mile moderate hike through field and forest to the sugar shack (weather dependent)

Maple Lane Tours: 12:00 and 3:00; perfect for little legs, a short walk from the farmhouse to the sugar maple stand.

Maple products and hot chocolate available for purchase in our Visitors Center gift shop.

For all tours, visitors are asked to be sure to dress warmly and wear appropriate footwear for snow and mud.
