Tipton-Haynes State Historic Site will be hosting its 16th Annual Maple Syrup Festival and Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, February 16, from 8am to 3pm. Have you ever wondered how maple syrup gets from the tree to your table? Did you know that it takes 10 gallons of sap to make a quart of syrup? This is your chance to learn all about it! Come to Tipton-Haynes to discover the history, lore, and method of making maple syrup. The sap will be extracted from maple trees located on the grounds of the site and will then be boiled down over a wood fired furnace until it becomes the rich, flavorful maple syrup that you love so much.
From 8am to 11am, we will be serving a pancake breakfast. Juice, coffee, and milk will be included with your meal. Be sure to arrive early and let us feed you before you help our volunteers boil the sap into maple syrup.
Admission is $5 for adults and $2.50 for children twelve and under (children 3 and under are free). Breakfast is $2 extra for everyone. As always, Tipton-Haynes members are FREE! Donations are welcomed and will go to help the site continue its mission values. Genuine maple syrup will also be for sale – $15.00 per pint and $8.00 per half pint.
