Discover the magic of Maple and the people that process it

Learn how maple syrup gets from tree to table. Discover more of the story and get up close to the process and people that have been making it through eight generations and some 200 years starting with ancestors who were taught how to tap maple trees by Native Americans. Walk on nature trails, watch a humorous educational video, and get a taste of sugar on snow - hot maple sugar turned to taffy when it’s drizzled over shaved ice and served with a fresh donut. Open year round for fun of every flavor from leaf peeping to skiing to sugarin’ time and warm summer days. There’s a farmer’s market in season and the gift shop with everything maple and more.
