This Introduction to Maple Sugaring class is a wonderful way to connect with nature, learn about a traditional and sustainable practice, and produce your own delicious maple syrup. It's also a great opportunity to explore the unique flavors and culinary possibilities that maple products offer.

This will be hands-on experience, depending on the class, participants may have the opportunity to tap trees, participate in the sap-boiling process, and make a few culinary delights. We will also share in some delicious maple syrup-to-maple fudge. We will go over some recipes for maple drinks and foods that you will want to share with your family and friends.
