Maple Sugaring

Winter Farming at Ambler Farm…

We are fortunate to have many sugar maples right here at the farm and throughout Wilton. The traditional season to make maple syrup in Connecticut is from early February through late March. Freezing nights and warm, sunny days are required for the maple tree to yield sap, a colorless liquid with a light, sweet taste. We tap trees and collect this sap in buckets, and through boiling in our Sugar Shack, the maple taste and amber color (i.e. maple syrup) are concentrated.

Join us at our various programs and open houses to be a part of this uniquely North American process!
