Late winter in New England often features cold nights and warmer days, providing ideal conditions for the running of the sap in our sugar maples. Join us for a morning of getting up close to these majestic maples, identifying the various species, and tasting sap right from the bucket! We'll conclude indoors to boil down a small amount of sap so we can watch it turn into syrup. In a blind taste test, we'll see who can tell the difference between real 100% maple syrup and a typical pancake syrup made mostly of corn syrup.
