Celebrate Maple Sugaring Season! - March 16 & 17
Real Vermont maple syrup on fresh pancakes is the centerpiece of Mass Audubon's Drumlin Farm's annual Sap-to-Syrup Farmer's Breakfast, but don't forget about our homemade sausage and roasted potatoes! Join us for a filling and fun breakfast on March 16 and 17 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Before or after your breakfast, walk the sap-to-syrup trail between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Explore the natural history of maple trees, and see how sap is collected from Drumlin Farm's sugar bush.†Visit our evaporator and learn about how to turn tree sap into the maple syrup we all know and love. Learn how the Native Americans produced syrup and why the season is so short here in eastern Massachusetts. Finish your maple sugaring morning with a visit to the farmyard to see other spring surprises, including baby animals.
Cost is $15 for adults, $12 for children and free for children under 2. Tickets for this event must be purchased in advance. To register, please call 781-259-2218.
