**Due to high interest in this class, I will be scheduling at least one more before the season begins.  check the event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/168429680420842/) and our Facebook page(https://www.facebook.com/K7farm/) for updates!

Maple syrup season is a short but furious season here in Michigan. I will teach you how to get started with tapping maple trees (and introduce you to other trees you can tap, too!) – supplies and how to use them, when to set taps, how to collect and store sap, and transform it into syrup. Finally, learn how to turn that syrup into a shelf stable product that will be good to stay on your pantry shelves. Not sure if you have any maple trees on your property? We will take a short walk around my farm and I will show you how to ID maple trees in the winter after they have lost their leaves and how to set taps. We will be handling this from a beginner standpoint with a limited budget who may want to tap 1-20 (give or take) trees. Learn the information before the season begins so you can gather your supplies and be ready to get to work once it’s time! There is a lot of information to cover, but don’t worry – I will send you home with a booklet that covers everything you have learned!

Maple syruping is an event the whole family can help out with!

Bring the whole family!

$20 for the whole family to come and learn. Please register and prepay ahead of time to ensure the number of seats you will need. We will be outside for a short period so please dress accordingly, the rest of the time we will be indoors.
