Maple Syrup Tour at Maybury Farm:
This engaging tour begins with a wagon ride out to the Sugar Bush where you will head into the woods and learn about the amazing way sugar maple trees produce sap, how to tap a tree, why sap flows, and how to collect it. The wagon will then take your group to the Sugar Shack where you will learn how sap becomes delicious maple syrup and watch the process in action, in our evaporator. You will also get to try a sample of the finished product! Event runs every week-end in March, beginning 3/7 through 3/29 - see event page for more specific details.
Northville Community Foundation is a non-profit organization. The funds you donate go to feedng the animals and maintaining the farm during the closed season. Please consider giving your donation money to us. Just go the "GIVE" tab on the website. No amount is too small. Thank you for considering giving to NCF and Maybury Farm.
The fence on the farm has a low voltage hot wire component in two locations around the fence at the farm, watch for signs! For ease of petting the animals (no feeding is allowed) go to the big black gate, animals come to the gate to see them up close and petting. The animals come to the gate as this is where the team at the farm go when they feed them. Again, please watch for the electric fence signs around the farm and educate your family and friends to not touch the white wire.
