BOOK OUR NEW MAPLE SYRUP EDITION
Available March 5 to April 3 upon request

Head out to the sticky trail to discover how maple trees are identified and tapped for sap. Explore tools and artifacts used for this delicious tradition and, best of all, help bake a variety of maple treats!

Spend the second half of the day exploring select buildings in the historic Village. How did 19th century people prepare for the maple syrup season?


 

Get to work in an authentic heritage log house! Cook on a real wood stove, churn and prepare butter, card wool, and learn to use a spinning wheel. In our workshop weave on a barn loom, engage in wood working and explore various tools, and then enjoy a snack made with “many hands”. Spend the second half of the day exploring select buildings in the historic Village.
