Maple Sugaring Tap-a-Tree
Saturday, February 4, 2023
*** PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO EXTREME COLD TEMPERATURES ON SATURDAY 2/4, WE WILL BE HOLDING OUR ORIENTATION SESSIONS INSIDE THE WHITE CARRIAGE BARN. YOU WILL ONLY BE OUTSIDE TO HANG YOUR BUCKET ***
11:00am or 1:00pm · Carriage Barn at Ambler Farm · $65 per member family · $70 per nonmember family
Choose your tree and hang your bucket! Learn the science and history of maple sugaring by being a hands-on part of the process. There will be two informal orientation sessions offered; only ONE session is required. On that day, February 4th (11:00am + 1:00pm) we invite your family out to Ambler Farm to choose your maple tree and hang your sap collection bucket. We will send regular updates on the sap progress, so you know when to collect it. Sap is boiled down in our sugar shack and each family receives their very own bottle of Ambler Farm maple syrup.
The season runs from early February to mid-March. Maple syrup production is winter farming and, therefore, weather dependent. A typical season is five weeks long. If you are traveling during February or March, our Apprentices will collect sap for you.
Enrollment is limited to 100 families. This program has sold out quickly in previous years, so please do not wait to sign up! The number of trees at the Farm is limited, so we are unable to accommodate late requests or wait lists.
Registration begins for members on December 1st and opens to nonmembers on December 15th (space permitting).
Please contact Stacey Valimont
