Maple Sugar Celebration
Saturday, March 5, 2022 from 10am – 2pm
Bring the whole family to Stratford for a self-guided exploration to celebrate this special time of year. From farm to forest discover the early signs of spring. Celebrate the maple sugar season as you hold a new baby lamb, learn how to tap a tree, visit the Sugar Shack, taste maple syrup, visit the greenhouse, feed the chickens, and more.
After your adventure, warm up by the fire as you enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and a maple cookie. Before you head home, be sure to stop in the farm store to take the makings of a delicious and hearty Stratford breakfast home with you – Stratford Family pancake mix, pure maple syrup, and farm fresh sausage will be available for purchase.
$10 per person. Ages 2 and under free. Limited spaces available. Online registration for your family’s arrival time is required due to potential limited parking during muddy, spring weather.
