Ever thought of trying maple sugaring?
Join Tim, Director of the UVM Proctor Maple Research Center to learn how to make your own maple syrup. Learn how to identify different maple trees, the secrets of tapping trees and collecting the sap for boiling, then processing the sap into pure maple syrup, cream, candy, and sugar on snow. Tim grew up carrying sap buckets and wood for his grandfather's sugaring operation in Westmore, Vermont, and has been sharing his experiences and knowledge of our maple trees and sugaring ever since.
This class is appropriate for those interested in tapping a couple of trees or hundreds. All materials included in fee.
