Making Maple Syrup Tours
Saturday and Sundays
March 9th - March 31st, 2019
Tours depart at 1:00, 1:45, 2:30, 3:15, 4:00pm
Space is limited for each tour, please check our Facebook page for sell-out notices. We recommend arriving very early to ensure your spot on the wagon. At this time we do not take advance registration for groups of less than 15.
The wagon ride to and from the Sugar Bush is included with your tour ticket.
Your tour begins with a wagon ride out to the Sugar Bush. Once you arrive, you will head into the woods where you will learn about the maple tree, how to tap it, and then collect the sap. You can even taste the sap straight from the tree! The wagon will then take you to the Sugar Shack where you will watch and learn how the sap is converted into delicious maple syrup, how syrup is graded and also how to try making maple syrup at home.
Once your tour is finished, you are invited to warm up in the Maybury Farm General Store where hot drinks and snacks are available to enjoy next to the toasty wood stove. Pure Michigan Maple Syrup is available for purchase and we offer free recipes for you to try with your maple syrup at home. This is a fun and educational experience for all ages and a great farm tour to enjoy with your family!
Please note that we recommend dressing for the weather and wearing appropriate footwear. This tour takes place outside and in the woods which is often wet and snowy. Boots and warm clothes are recommended.
$8 per person, kids under 2 are free (must ride on laps in wagon)
Group tours are available for any group of 15 or more paid admissions (over age 2). Additional tour times available during the week for group tours. Call (248) 374-0200 to book your private group Maple Syrup tour!
