Saturdays at the Sugar Shack

Visit Appleton Farms' sugaring operation and experience a New England tradition

Appleton Farms invites families to come visit the sugar shack at Appleton Farms and experience the sights and smells of this historic New England tradition! Spring is coming and the sap is running! Experience the time-honored tradition of maple sugaring with Sugar Shack Saturdays at Appleton Farms. Spend the morning or afternoon with us and see how we turn sap into sweet syrup. Start by getting creative with some maple themed crafts in the Appleton Old House. Then get outside and explore our very own sugar shack! Learn how we tap our trees every spring, see the evaporator in action, and even taste some of our syrup! We will end back inside with some delicious snacks, including Appleton Farms cheese and a maple treat, while we read a sugaring story!

  • Morning Session: 10:30AM-12PM
  • Afternoon Session: 1:30-3PM
  • Recommended for ages 8 and under but everyone is welcome!
