Maple Sugaring at Woodbury Sugar Shed

Not just a demonstration, not just a hobby sized evaporator either, it's the real thing! Producing almost 900 gallons a season of the best sweetener in the world (we maybe a bit biased in that part). It's a simple yet complicated process, like fine wine or cheese it's an art. Stop in for a brief discussion about how maple syrup is produces, the history of maple in New England and it's importance in Colonial times up to present day. Take in the sights and smells of a 4' x 12' wood burning evaporator (the boiling part of the process). Get a sample of syrup and fee free to ask questions you have.Afterwards Bring home some maple syrup, The Farm products, and even a CSA 2019 Share (Details at location) on our sales side of the sugar house. Be sure to double check each week as mother nature may throw us a curve ball, not allowing us to be active in production.
