This program introduces people of all ages to the process of creating maple syrup, a uniquely North American sugar crop. Trained guides take small groups through the woods to see the tapped trees and then watch it being boiled into sugar. Tree Tapping & Sap Sampling: Learn how to identify a sugar maple tree, see how the trees are tapped and taste the sap, if it is flowing. Syrup Making: Learn how sap is boiled down in our evaporator to make syrup and how the methods of collecting and cooking the sap have changed over the history of maple sugaring. And lastly, how maple syrup is graded and see different products made from maple syrup. Tasting: Finish your tour with a stop at the historic Four Mills Barn to sample waffles with maple syrup and some hot cocoa! • WVWA Members: $5 adult/$3 child (12 years and under) • Non-Members: $10 adult/$5 child (12 years and under) • Dress for the weather and trail conditions; wear sturdy, protective shoes or boots • No dogs or strollers please The tours are time-based, so reservations are recommended (walk-ins welcome as available).
