We provide an educational and cultural experience for all ages. Pancakes with our own maple syrup will be served (note: food is not included in admission) and songs will be sung! Gather, socially-distant, around the steamy sap boiler! Visit our sheep and other farm animals. Engage in tree-centered activities. Live music from the Seed Song Farm-ily Band!
