Maple Sugaring Tours
Open weekends in March for sugaring tours!

warren farm & sugarhouse tours



Everyone will enjoy this fascinating visit to a New England sugaring operation.

We'll share stories (in a warm greenhouse!)  about the Native Americans’ role in the early history of sugaring, then continue by demonstrating colonial methods for collecting and boiling, and discussing the future of maple production.  During a quick trip to our woods you'll explore two different systems used today, and will have an opportunity to see new technology.  Aspects of nature, science, meteorology, and math will be woven into the presentation. The tour then heads to the sugarhouse, where a large evaporator stands ready to receive sap from collection tanks outside.  Here, everyone will learn how sap is boiled into syrup, and see the equipment and gauges needed for this process.  We'll end back at the greenhouse display for more stories and sampling.  Boiling is weather dependent, so the tours are not based on our ability to boil.   This is certainly a tradition that has something of interest for all ages!

FREE sap and syrup tasting
FREE hot drinks
FREE maple recipe booklet

You may also choose to just come and walk around the farm on your own at no charge and without reservations.  The Sweet Traditions movie will be playing throughout the day in the greenhouse, and you can poke around the tour areas when groups are not using them.
