Maple in the Barnyard at Appleton Farms

Sugaring Bucket

About Maple in the Barnyard at Appleton Farms

Maple Season is here! This special program for ages 3 – 11 for families and will focus on the magic of maple from start to finish. We will discover this tradition by observing trees, tasting sap, learning the tools involved, and finally, tasting the sweet product. We will make sure to have time to visit our barnyard animals!

This program is for families, and will take place on the hour at 12, 1, and 2. Please dress for the weather! Children over 12 may be better suited for our Maple Strolls as the information at Maple in the Barnyard is geared towards a younger audience.

We will have a food station open selling maple baked goods, snacks and treats from 12-3pm by the sugar shack. Make sure to stop by! No pizza service will be available.

Looking for a more adult tour? Sign up for our Maple Stroll instead!
