Maple Sugaring Tours

Open weekends in March for sugaring tours!

The whole family will enjoy this fascinating visit to a New England sugaring operation. 

We'll share stories about the Native Americans' role in the early history of sugaring, then continue by demonstrating colonial methods and tools for collecting and boiling, and discuss the future of sugaring.  During a quick trip to our woods you'll explore two different systems used today, and will have an opportunity to see new technology.  Aspects of nature, science, meteorology, and math will be woven into the presentation. The tour then heads to the sugarhouse, where a large evaporator stands ready to receive sap from collection tanks outside.  Here, everyone will learn how sap is boiled into syrup, and see the equipment and gauges needed for this process.  We'll end back at the greenhouse display for more stories and sampling.  This is certainly a tradition that has something of interest for all!

You may also choose to just come and walk around the farm on your own at no charge and without reservations.  The Sweet Traditions movie will be playing throughout the day in the greenhouse, and you can poke around the tour areas when groups are not using them.

Jordan's Path

Please schedule some extra time to walk "Jordan's Path", an Eagle Scout project here in North Brookfield.  A hiking trail has been carved out from St. Joseph's Cemetery, down through the woods which we tap with tubing, and up to St. Joseph's rectory.  Well marked and maintained, the trail includes bridges over a creek and our mainlines, planks over wetlands, and benches for resting and observing.  The round trip hike is approx. 1 mile over easy terrain.  On a beautiful spring day, you will walk among our tubing, hear many types of birds, and be at peace in the woods.  Directions are available in our gift shop.

Winter has given us perfect conditions to tap early. This would be an excellent time for our local friends to walk “...
