See how real maple syrup is made with a demonstration of maple syrup making using modern tools. Glastonbury Native Mark Packard will take you through the maple sugar making process. Attendees will get to explore the property and check out the sugar bush on the hill where the trees are tapped. Then you will see the sap transform as it boils in a large pan, on our newly built granite fire pit. You will get to see how delicious maple syrup is created and ask any questions you may have along the way. The sap that is prepared and boiled during the demonstration won’t complete while you are there, but inside the Welles Shipman Ward House, pancakes will be cooked on the open hearth using an 18th century “receipt” and served with authentic native syrup. A great family event.
