Maple Syrup Program Sat. March 1st, rain date Sun March 2nd
A sure sign of the approach of Spring in New England is the sight of sap collecting tubing, buckets and tubs set alongside the roads and in the woods. Today the making of maple syrup is an industry, but for much of our history it was a family affair. If you have a maple tree in your yard, you can re-create this historic ritual and make a new family tradition. The process of making syrup the old fashioned way is fairly straight forward and provides an opportunity for families to enjoy the great outdoors while connecting with our past. Equipment is simple and easily improvised, costs are minimal, but the memories will last a lifetime. On Saturday March 1st from 1-3PM (rain date March 2nd), the Barkhamsted Historical Society will present a demonstration on how to make maple syrup in your own backyard at the Squire's tavern,100 East River Rd, Barkhamsted, CT. Come join in the fun! Questions: call Noreen Watson at 860 738-1152.
