Enjoy a New England Tradition:
Celebrate the transition of winter to spring  with our sugaring-off festival. Come see how our famous maple syrup is boiled & bottled in the sugar house by Forestry Staff & with the help of our Maple education programs.  We’ve been working hard through the winter tapping trees & collecting sap, and now we get to enjoy the sweet, sweet reward!   We will be offering tours with small groups of 6-10 people at a time, & staff will be there to help keep the social distance pace flowing, (please notify staff if you require a smaller group.)  We are looking forward to hosting this beloved event outdoors  in the safest way possible with some adjustments.

Great for the Whole Family!
Come by the Weston Middle School Sugar House for FREE tours (Sign up Required) to see the amazing process from beginning to finished product of boiling maple sap into syrup!  Our forestry & education  staff will be on hand to answer questions and show you behind the scenes. Join the celebration of this amazing process and our continued effort to keep the forest alive!

We are unable to serve up pancakes on site at this time, but with any purchase of Land’s Sake maple syrup, we are offering a take home pancake party for a donation of only$10!  You will receive a package of local easy to make pancake mix, access to our virtual breakfast video by local chef Ellen, who will show us fun ways to enjoy pancakes, and a list of other maple recipes.  At this event we will have for sale some of our farmstand favorites, but the big star is the first batch of fresh, local 100% pure Maple Syrup!

If you can’t stay for the maple tours, our farmstand online store is up and running!  You can place your order at our online farm stand in advance, and we will have an express lane for purchases only on the day of the event. You can pick up your local goodies and beat the line, reserve yours today!  

Land’s Sake Support:
Winter is when we prepare for the next bountiful season and it gives us time to appreciate how special our farm is.  This festival is a great time to join Land’s Sake in our mission to connect the community to  the land through farming, forestry & education.  At this event, we will have information about Membership, CSA Shares, Green Dollars, Volunteer opportunities & Summer Education Programs.  Whether a new local, or a seasoned member, learn about what we have in store for this season & how you can get involved!
