Ambler Farm’s popular Maple Syrup Tap-a-Tree program is now open for registration to farm members only. Registration for non-members, space permitting, will begin on January 15th. This program is one of a kind and provides your family the unique experience of tapping your own tree at Ambler Farm to collect sap for your private reserve of Ambler Farm maple syrup.
Learn the science and history of maple syruping by being a hands-on part of the process. There are two training sessions offered; only ONE session is required for training. On that day you will choose a tree and hang your bucket that will collect sap. We will send regular updates on the running of the sap so you can come to the Farm to collect sap from your tree. 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 – it is the best around, with NO additives. You can say you made your own 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 you are traveling during February or March, we will collect sap for you.
Cost: $60 per member family
$65 per non-member family
