Maple Sugaring in the 100 Acre Wood
Open on weekends in March and April during Sugaring season.
Guided tours through our Sugar Bush offered weekend afternoons, weather/operation permitting. Enjoy a wagon ride through the woods, learn about the history of sugaring, how to identify maple trees, tap for sap, collection and sample tasting. Tour is approx. 1 hour. Dress according to weather. Suggested donation: $5/per person. We are grateful for all donations.
Self-Guided tours can be done on our Maple Storybook Trail which begins right near our Sugar Shack. This tour can be done anytime, however an inside peek at our Sugar Shack can only be done when we are open.
If there is steam rolling out of the Sugar Shack, you are welcome to step inside for a firsthand look of the historic and innovative process of turning sap into maple syrup. Stop in, learn more about one of Mother Nature’s sweetest and healthiest offerings and taste a sample.
We also offer Group Educational Tours for all ages during Maple Season mid-week. Please call 603-356-9980.
The net proceeds of the “100 Acre Wood” Maple Syrup goes directly toward our literacy programs.
"Tap Your Own" Program
Have you ever wanted to tap your own maple trees but didn't have the equipment to do so?
Well now you can! Believe in Books will have "Tap Your Own" kits available for you to rent complete with drill bits, spiles and buckets. We provide the supplies - you provide the trees!
Kits will be available in our 100 Acre Wood Sugar Shack on the weekends and at our office during the week. After you've collected your sap, you can bring it back to our Sugar Shack and trade it for maple syrup!
