As winter cold begins to recede, the ground unfreezes and the sap starts to run. On a New York farm, the first harvest of the year was always maple syrup. In this family-friendly program, you’ll learn the process for yourself from colonial techniques to later innovations. And of course, we’ll be able to taste the results! COVID safety will be observed and face masks may be required, pending NYS mandates. This is an outdoor event in so be prepared for winter temperatures!
