Hale Farm & Village Maple Sugar Days & Pancake Breakfast Returns!

Maple Sugar Festival at Hale Farm & Village

We are so excited to see things start to get back to normal here in Ohio. Now that we have social distancing measures in place, fun activities like the Hale Farm & Village Maple Sugar Days & Pancake Breakfast returns! This family-fun activity is on March 13, 14, 20 & 21, 2021. It’s a great day outside while learning in-person the process of maple sugaring past and present from 9am – 4pm. Don’t miss this fun day out with your family – you deserve it!

This is a fun event for families, seniors, and kids of all ages. Above, my kids were just 3 and 5 years old when we first visited Hale Farm & Village during Maple Sugar Days. We had a lovely warm day that year. My kids loved exploring the farm and learning how maple syrup is made! This year, my kids are teenagers and just as excited! In fact, they want to tap their own tree in our yard this year!

The 19th century village is open to experience outdoor demonstrations including tree tapping, oxen talks, a sugaring camp and the process of boiling sap into syrup. Historic crafts and trades are also demonstrated throughout the day.

Hale Farm & Village’s Sugar House built in 1910 is a highlight of the Maple Sugar Days.

You and your children will learn so much about how it was in the 19th century and now – fascinating. It’s good to teach kids where things like maple syrup comes from, not just from Acme although Acme Fresh Market is a proud sponsor of the Hale Farm & Village Maple Sugar Days.
