CELEBRATE SUGARING SEASON DURING MAPLE HARVEST DAY AT STORROWTON VILLAGE MUSEUM
Storrowton Village Museum celebrates all things maple on Maple Harvest Day each year in mid-March 10am to 3pm. The annual FREE 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, from tree tapping to sap boiling, 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.
The West Springfield Lions Club will flip 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. All proceeds from the pancake breakfast will be donated to Storrowton’s educational programs.
