Upcoming Events at Maple Moon Farm
Maple Syrup Making Class, Saturday March 16th 2:30-5p
We have 2 spaces left for our maple syrup making class this coming Saturday. This class covers the entire process of making maple syrup from maple tree ID to sanitary bottling practices. You will participate in each step of the process so that you will leave here with the confidence to make syrup yourself at home. Each participant will take home a bottle of syrup that they helped to make. Registration required. Please go to airbnb.com and click on “experiences”, search for Maine and click on “make maple syrup on a 1790s Maine farm” to learn more and to register. Class limited to 6 participants.
1st Open House of the 2019 Maple Season: Sunday March 17th from 1-4pm
Come join us for our 1st open house of the 2019 maple season. The weather has FINALLY warmed enough for sap to start flowing (about 3 weeks behind our usually start) and we will be making syrup this weekend. Visitors are encouraged to participate in the process of making syrup (if interested) and the sugarhouse store will be open to satisfy your maple sweet tooth needs :)
Maine Maple Weekend Celebration!
Please join us March 23rd and 24th for our annual Maine Maple Weekend celebration. We will be open both days from 10am-4pm. Help fire the evaporator, take a tour of the sugarbush and learn more about maple trees or simply relax and enjoy the maple scent of the steam coming off the evaporator. We will also be making mini pancakes (with our syrup of course) on our 100 year old wood cookstove. Weather permitting we will have the folk band Wild Maple performing live outside of the sugarhouse on Sunday from about 12-2 including a song written about our sugarhouse! Check out www.reverbnation.com/wildmaple to learn more about the band and hear some of their music (including our favorites Ride and Sweet Tequila Blues ). We will also have Ari from The Peoples Popcorn making fresh kettle corn (including maple kettle corn using our maple sugar ) in his portable kettle which is a sight (and smell) to see! Check out www.thepeoplespopcorn.comfor more info. All are welcome and this event is FREE. Please come dressed for the outdoors and for mud.
