 Tap the Sugar Maples

Saturday, February 4 | 10:00–4:00

Children's Craft: Paper Mold (11:00–3:00)

Hundreds of sugar maple trees line the banks of Moore's Creek and the nearby woods at the foot of Baldpate Mountain...and in February farmers begin the annual work of sap collection and maple syrup production. The first step takes place in the sugar bush, and at 10:30, 11:00, 11:30, 12:00, 12:30, 1:00, 1:30, 2:00, 2:30, and 3:00, visitors can join Howell Farm’s expert tree-tappers for a lesson in how to tap a backyard maple tree and make syrup at home.  Demonstrations are limited to 25 participants, so register early to reserve your space!

Outside activities include firewood cutting, rail splitting and, if conditions permit, a continuation of ice harvesting operations.
