Maple Sugar Tours

Posted by CAiello

Two types of tours are offered. Sugar Bush Tours: 11am, 1pm & 2pm; are a one mile moderate hike through field and forest to the original Sugar Shack (terrain and weather conditions dependent). Maple Lane Tours: 12pm & 3pm; perfect for little legs, a short walk from the farmhouse to the Jacqueline L. Grant Sugar Shack after a tour of the sugar maple stand. Learn how to identify and tap sugar maple trees, discover sugaring techniques used by Native Americans, pioneers, and modern-day farmers, and see an evaporator in action. On the final stop of the tour, visit the farmhouse for the “taste test challenge” to see if you can tell the difference between maple-flavored syrup and the real thing! The Nature Shop will also be open where local maple syrup and other maple and nature related gifts are available for purchase. Before the tour begins, visit the pop-up exhibit in the Ballroom that will explore the basic tools and vocabulary you’ll encounter on the tour. This temporary exhibition is interactive and great for kids!
