Sugaring Program at Sugar Hill Farm
Sugaring at Sugar Hill Farm
Families are invited to join the Westchester Land Trust (WLT) on February 23 for a backyard sugaring at Sugar Hill Farm in Bedford Hills. This hands-on program, which runs from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., will include history, storytelling, science and sap tasting—or “something for everybody,” says Kristen O’Hara, WLT conservation program coordinator.
“Guests will discover how to identify a maple tree, tap it and then detail the process of making syrup,” she says. “They can come explore a tradition and leave with DIY knowledge on how to tap into an amazing resource in their own backyard. Also, this program will be indoors and outdoors. You can’t have maple syrup without cold weather, so guests should come prepared with warm clothing.” The rain date is February 24.
