Maple Syrup Tap-a-Tree

Training dates: Saturday, February 11th from 11am - noon and Sunday, February 12th from 12:30 - 1:30pm.

In this extremely popular program, your family will learn the science and history of maple syruping by being a hands-on part of the process. You will choose a tree at the Farm and hang your bucket that will collect sap. We will boil down the sap in our sugar shack and send each family home with their very own bottle of Ambler Farm maple syrup. Enrollment Limited: This program sold out quickly in previous years so please do not wait to sign up. The number of trees at the Farm is limited, so we are unable to accommodate late requests or wait lists. Classes are $60 per family if members, $65 for non member family. Register here + more information. 

Middlebrook Maple Syrup Program

This 6 week program runs from early February through mid-March. Students in grades 6-8 will meet after school on Thursdays until 4:10. They will tap over 50 trees at Middlebrook school and meet each week to collect the sap. Students and families will be invited to Ambler Farm to see how the sap is made into syrup. As a thank you for participating each student will receive a bottle of maple syrup made from the sap that they helped harvest. Please contact Kevin Meehan at to sign up your child. There is no charge for this program.
