Class Fee: $40
Class fee includes cost of material for this class, if provided.

Skill Level: No experience necessary

Have you always thought about making your own maple syrup?  How do you know if you have the right trees?   How much sap does it take?  (40 gallons for 1 gallon of syrup! ) How does it get transformed into the wonderful golden elixir we love on our pancakes?

We welcome local experts Dave Swager and Jim Smith, who will take us through all the steps in producing maple syrup.  We will meet at a nearby property to see how trees are tapped and follow the process from start to finish.  There’s a good possibility we will be right in the middle of cooking time, which is a sight to see!

If you have a group of friends or family interested in sharing trees, why not sign up and come as a group?    Everyone will leave with a delicious bottle of the true nectar of the gods!

Intergenerational Age 10+: Adults are invited to share in the fun of learning a new skill with a younger person. Each child must be accompanied by an adult. There is no charge for the additional person, just complete the registration for 1 adult and note the name and age of the child in the comment section of the registration.
