Maple at Sugar Moon Farm

Every spring (March and April) we gather the clear sap from our sugar maples and transform it into pure maple syrup over a wood fire. 


Sugar Season is in the spring, typically a 3 to 6 week period between the end of February and mid-April.  The season begins when the trees first wake up and ends when they start to grow:  once the buds begin to swell, the sap doesn't make good syrup and we're done!  


Then we move on to clean up, tapping out firewood and, of course, welcoming visitors to experience maple year round.


Sign up for an indoor 30-40 minute tour. Hear our stories. See where we make maple syrup. Taste the season. Make memories. Tours happen hourly between 10 and 3 during regular hours. $5/$3.

Want the whole package? Book MAPLE MAGIC - a reserved prepaid package that includes brunch, a tour and sugar on snow. NOTE that this package IS BY RESERVATION ONLY and you need to book online.
