Go Maple Sugaring and Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth!
Go see where that sweet maple syrup comes from! With over 200 years of family tradition and eight generations of experience, Morse Farm is THE place to go to experience the process of maple sugaring first-hand. Over 200 years ago, the Morse ancestors were taught how to tap maple trees by Native Americans. Back then, hot rocks were used to evaporate the sap until only sugar was left. Come and see how the process has changed!
