If you've joined us for Maple Weekend in the past, please note, this year will be slightly lower key as we are still under construction. We will not begin making syrup at our new sugarhouse until the 2024 season, so please don’t be surprised that our evaporator is not yet set up. There will still be 𝐋𝐎𝐓𝐒 to see, learn and do.
*𝐈𝐌𝐏𝐎𝐑𝐓𝐀𝐍𝐓 - There will be 𝐍𝐎 Maple Weekend activities at our old sugarhouse.*
