Freezing nights in the 20s and warm days in the 40s signal the sap run and start of sugaring season!

Join us at Natick Community Organic Farm to observe live campfires with boiling sap that demonstrate how Native Americans and Colonists likely made maple sugar. We’ll learn about tree identification, climate change impacts, qualities of sap and syrup, and more in our outdoor, mini “maple museum” and at a tapped tree. If the weather’s just right, we’ll watch sap’s journey from slow drips into buckets, to our boiling evaporator, and onto your kitchen table! On days when Mother Nature graces us with sap, we’ll peek through the door of our sugar shack to observe the boil in action.

Tours run regardless of weather, sap run, or boiling, so c’mon down and get a fascinating glimpse into this enduring tradition, unique to northern North America. We will finish the tour with a taste of the farm’s maple syrup.
