NFC - Randall Maple Syrup Production Tour

Maple Season is upon us: Come join the club at a most interesting event on April 18th at 10 am.

NYFOA members Eric and Eleanor Randall will be graciously opening up their homestead to give us a sneak peek into the world of maple syrup production. It has been a very interesting winter(?) and sap flow started extremely early. Our hosts not only will show us the process but will allow us to sample some of the product at a pancake brunch.

But wait, there’s more. Eric has volunteered to show us the different varieties of maple on his property. He has researched these trees for a large number of years and attempted to identify and cultivate trees of exceptional sugar content in their sap.

Not enough? We will also be hosting a “stump the experts” tree identification session. Bring your
buds, bark and branches for identification. The event starts at 10 am. There will be a short woods walk followed by breakfast/brunch. NYFOA will provide pancakes with maple syrup, sausages and apple sauce. They will also provide plates, cutlery, and napkins. Bring your coffee mug and lawn chair. If you have a hand magnifying lens bring it along as well.

Dress for the weather, which can be quite fickle this time of year.
