Maple Syrup, Horses and Sour Pickles
The Rocks Estate comes alive with spring activities March 17,24 and 31.
The program at the Rocks is unusual as there is a great deal of attention to hands on learning. Participants not only see how syrup is made but also learn about the history, basic tree identification techniques and the economic importance of natural maple products.
“We let people help tap our maple trees as part of the program so that they can enjoy and understand another rural aspect of New England.” said Manley.
