It’s everything maple at Willowtree farm for MapleFest. Bring your family out for a day at the sugar shack and see an authentic maple syrup operation. We will be doing wagon rides to our sugar shack, where you can see the evaporator boiling, walk along the maple trail and see the trees dripping sap and taste fresh sap and syrup and warm up beside the bonfire.
**Please make sure to dress for the cold! Make sure to bundle up in lots of layers, as the wagon ride is 10 minutes without cover. Also please make sure you are wearing boots that can get muddy because it can be very muddy as things start to thaw!!!**

Gear up for a great day!!
- Winter or Rubber boots are a must. It can be super muddy on warm days, so make sure your foot wear can get muddy.
- Wear lots of warm layers. Winter Coats, Hats, Mitts, Scarves. It is much easier to take a layer off when you are warm walking around rather than be stuck outside freezing!
