Maple Sugar Sunday with Story Time and a Craft – March 19th

Maple Sugar Sunday

March 19, 2023, 2 – 4 p.m.

One of the seasonal tasks of farm life in colonial days was sugar making in the maple woods. Learn about the colonial techniques of maple sugaring, how the maple sap rises and flows, how it is collected using wooden buckets and handmade spiles, and how sugar and syrup are made from the sap. (Please note that no tree will actually be tapped.) Program includes a maple sugar storytime and craft for the children. Our cooks will be showcasing open hearth cooking using period recipes and techniques. The grounds will be open for viewing and docents will be offering tours of the fully furnished c1740 farmhouse. Admission is $5.00 for adults and children 13 and older, $4.00 for children ages 3 to 12 and free under age 3.
