Storrowton’s annual event highlights the history and tradition of maple sugaring in New England. The historic Gilbert Farmhouse will turn into a sugarhouse for the day. Visitors can learn how the “liquid gold” is made and watch 19th century open hearth cooking demonstrations of maple recipes. A selection of gifts, including the Village’s very own Maple Harvest Sampler Cookbook, will be sold in a maple-themed pop-up shop. Docent-led tours and 19th century craft demos will also be available in the Gilbert Farmhouse.
Make a morning of it by joining the West Springfield Lions Club for their pancake breakfast to benefit Storrowton’s educational programs. Eat pancakes, served with pure New England maple syrup, in the Village’s red Greenwich Barn from 10am to noon. Pick up a plate for $5 per person, with a side choice of sausages and coffee or juice.
