Maple Stroll at Appleton Farms

Sugaring Bucket

About Maple Stroll at Appleton Farms

This event has sold out.

Join us for a seasonal stroll through Appleton Farms to learn about maple sugaring. We’ll start at the Farm Offices buliding and meander to some maple trees on the property, where we will learn the process for tapping trees, extracting the sap and making maple syrup.

Be sure to wear weather appropriate clothing and boots or shoes that are appropriate for hiking in potentially wet and muddy spots or over uneven terrain. All hikes are weather permitting.

Please note: Participants will be asked to follow Covid-19 related guidelines, including wearing face coverings and maintaining social distance. If you are experiencing symptoms, please do not attend the event.

Space is limited for this event and pre-registration is strongly recommended

We will meet at the Farm Offices building.
