Tap-a-Tree Maple Syrup Program @ Ambler Farm

CTbites Team

It's that time of year again. Sign up for Ambler Farms immensely popular, Maple Syrup Tap-a-Tree program. Sign up quickly...these classes fill up fast. 

Learn the science and history of maple syruping by being a hands-on part of the process at Ambler Farm in Wilton. 

Training Sessions: Saturday, February 6th at 10am or 1pm Learn the science and history of maple syruping by being a hands-on part of the process. There will be two training sessions offered (February 6th at 10am or 1pm); only ONE session is required for training. On that day, participants will choose a tree and hang their bucket that will collect sap. Ambler Farm will send regular updates on the running of the sap so families can come to the Farm to collect sap from their trees. Sap will be boiled down in the Farm’s sugar shack and each family will go home with their very own bottle of Ambler Farm maple syrup.

The season runs from early February to mid-March. Maple syrup production is winter farming and, therefore, weather dependent. A typical season is five weeks long. If participants are traveling during February or March, Ambler Farm will collect their sap.

Enrollment is limited to 110 families. This program sold out quickly in previous years, so those interested should not wait to sign up.

$65 per non-member family $60 per member family
