Maple Sugaring Open House Update

Our Maple Sugaring Open House-- scheduled for Saturday, March 26th, 10am to 3pm-- is still happening in spite of the weather. However, we are making a few changes for your convenience, and the convenience of those working for us.

The following activities have been canceled:
  • Live music
  • Naturalist-led hike to sugarbush
The following activities have been moved indoors:
  • Bake sale
  • Syrup sales
  • Drawing for gift baskets
  • Syrup samples served over ice cream
The sugar shack tours and farm animal visits are scheduled to continue as planned. Furthermore, we will have recorded music; maple sugaring displays; and hot tea, coffee, and cocoa inside.

We hope you can still make it out to the farm!

woodcockCome out to our monthly potluck program for an evening of good food, fun company, and interesting presentations. The potluck starts at 7 pm. Bring a dish to pass if you can; but it's not required, so don't feel obligated! Wagbo provides drinks and table service.

The program begins at 8 pm with an evening viewing the spectacularly dramatic courtship display of the woodcock. Find out why they are nicknamed “the Little Brown Ghost” as we sneak through forest and field to experience our local harbingers of spring. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to encounter the wild animals that live in the Jordan River Valley. Great for individuals, couples, and families! Free and open to the public.
