Maple sap marks the first harvest of the year on our small family farm. Val and Brent, farmer-owners of Heartwood Farm & Cidery, have been sharing the magic of maple syrup season with friends and family for years. Heartwood’s small-scale maple syrup operation combines modern techniques of sap collection and processing with the charm of a small, wood-fired, open-air sugarshack, and the homespun delights of personal stories shared by the maple syrup team.
To keep the experience intimate, and with COVID safety in mind, Val will be guiding small-group (max 10-12), one-hour sugarbush immersions on certain weekdays and weekends throughout the maple sap season. Come to Heartwood to revel in the tradition of transforming this gift from the trees into a sweet taste of spring.
