Sugarbush Operations Apprentice

Want to learn all the ins-and-outs of the Blandford maple sugaring process but don’t have time to volunteer as a seasonal operator? Interested in starting your own sugarbush but need more information and experience first? Shadow the Blandford Sugarbush Master for an afternoon!

Tour the sugarbush – helping with sap collection, checking sugar content levels, and examining storage equipment. Then spend a few hours in the Sugarhouse, learning the art of maintaining a wood fire in the arch and the process for pulling a batch of syrup from the pan. Go home with new understanding, new skills, and a 16oz bottle of 2020 Blandford syrup that you helped create.

Don’t miss this one-of-kind opportunity to get “behind the fence” in the Blandford Sugarhouse!

Please dress for the weather. Warm work gloves, winter boots, and layers are highly recommended!

REGISTRATION REQUIRED, PROGRAM IS FOR AGES 18+ ONLY!
