Cabin fever setting in? Looking for a sweet pick-me-up? During the month of March, we invite all ages to try out making maple syrup from scratch (i.e. sap) at Aldermere Farm, 70 Russell Ave in Rockport. Individuals may schedule times to join MCHT Farm Manager, Aaron Englander, in the sugaring process – identifying and tapping sugar maples, hauling buckets of sap, tending the evaporator, and tasting the delicious final product. The syrup we produce will supply the Camden Community Breakfast.

MCHT’s Community Maple Sugaring Program is geared to individuals interested in the hands-on experience of making their own bottle of syrup from start to finish. All levels of experience are welcome. This program is free and open to the public. Sap flow is weather dependent. Early registration is recommended. To schedule times to participate, email or call 207-236-2739.
