Mass Audubon and the Department of Conservation and Recreation have shared the magic of turning sap into syrup with the community at Brookwood Farm in Canton for over 20 years!
Join us to experience the sugaring process from tree to table and discover how sugaring has evolved over time. Start your visit with a ride on the Maple Express Trolley. Enjoy a self- guided tour as you stroll down Maple Lane where you will learn how maple sugaring has been performed throughout the ages and see what it's like to tap a tree. Savor the taste of fresh maple syrup and watch steam rise from the boiling sap while visiting the sugar shack.
Grab a bite to eat from a food truck, and purchase some locally produced maple syrup to take home. Enjoy live bird of prey demonstrations, kids' games, meet mounted rangers and their horses, and much more!
This event is a self-guided tour over flat, level, and partially paved terrain. Visitors usually spend up to two hours outdoors at this event. Your ticket(s) allow you admission at any time during the event from 10am-3pm.
