Maple Sugaring for Beginners
Learn how to start your own backyard sugarbush!
Are you interested in setting up a small backyard sugarbush at home? Looking for tips to improve your current setup? MOFGA announces a home maple sugaring workshop to answer these questions and more. Led by the wonderful folks at Sap Hound Maple Company, we'll learn how to identify different kinds of maples and about basic tree physiology and other key factors that enable sap production. Participants will get hands-on lessons on how to properly tap trees, supplies needed and the process of turning sap into syrup. Learn what makes Sap Hound Maple a MOFGA-certified organic operation. Please bring a bag lunch and wear gear appropriate for walking and standing outside. We encourage snowshoes.
