Tap a Tree Maple Syrup Program
We look forward to seeing our Syrup Families on Saturday 2/11 at 11am or Sunday 2/12 at 12:30pm. Snow or shine! Bundle up and wear snow boots. Park in the soccer field lot and meet by the Sugar Shack. The soccer field lot will not be plowed until after the snow on Saturday, so please exercise caution.
Your family will learn the science and history of maple syruping by being a hands-on part of the process. There will be two training sessions offered this year,Saturday, February 11th or Sunday February 12th.Only ONE date is required for training. On that day you will choose a tree and hang your bucket that will collect sap.Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you register but cannot attend either orientation on 2/11 or 2/12. We will send regular updates on the running of the sap so you can come to the Farm to collect sap from your tree. We will boil down the sap in our sugar shack and send each family home with their very own bottle of Ambler Farm maple syrup.
The season runs from early February to mid-March. Maple syrup production is winter farming and therefore weather dependent. A typical season is five weeks long. If you are traveling during February or March, we will collect sap for you.
