How to Make Your Own Maple Syrup

March 31 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

With cold nights and warm days in the forecast, it means only one thing… maple syrup season is here! Come to Great Hollow and learn all about making maple syrup the easy way, right in your backyard. No fancy evaporator systems here; just a hot open fire to gather around for good conversation and to watch the process of boiling sap into syrup, or as the old timers call it, “liquid gold.” First we’ll learn how to identify and tap maple trees, hang buckets, and collect sap, and then finally, how to boil it down. Best of all, we’ll have the opportunity to taste the product of our hard work, pure 100% backyard style maple syrup! And if there’s enough, we will also have a limited number of small maple syrup bottles for you to fill and take home.

Please dress warmly and meet in the visitor’s parking area by the main entrance. A suggested donation of $10 per person is appreciated. Please sign up in advance by emailing John at gro.w1558283318olloh1558283318taerg1558283318@yelo1558283318fj1558283318.
