Learn directly from forestry and maple experts in our new outdoor Maple Education Center. See how the Native American Indians made maple syrup and help us boil sap outdoors like it was done in colonial times. We are third generation Vermont sugarmakers and your tour will cover the gambit from forest management, to modern sap collection systems, to proper tapping techniques and high vacuum technology. Observe ongoing experiments designed to improve overall efficiencies and sap production. We'll take you into the sugarhouse and explain reverse osmosis technology and how we process, boil, filter and bottle the world's finest maple syrup using the very latest in high tech equipment.
We’ll have maple sugar, maple cream, maple candy, maple cotton candy, maple lollipops, granola, maple cream donuts and maple hotdogs! Many maple confections will be available to sample.
