Ever wonder what goes into producing the maple syrup that you pour on pancakes? Did you realize that most maple flavored syrups you find
in the grocery store have less than one percent real maple syrup in them?
Find out how pure maple syrup is made at Farmpark.
Throughout the weekend, we offer hands-on activities to learn about the maple sugaring process as the sap is collected, boiled, and turned into maple syrup and other maple products.
Help tap a tree and gather sap used to make maple syrup. Get a taste of the delicious end product as you sample freshly made maple syrup and maple sugar. Maple stirs available for purchase to make your own tasty treat.

Support Lake Metroparks’
Maple Sugaring Program
Maple syrup production at Farmpark promotes conservation by preserving 27 acres of maple woodland.
Help Lake Metroparks introduce the story of maple sugaring to residents of
Lake County and Northeast Ohio. You can receive maple products and be recognized as a supporter of the educational mission of Farmpark when you adopt a tap. At the higher level you and your guests can receive the opportunity to learn the art of sugaring from Lake Metroparks’ experienced syrup makers. Help tap a tree, gather sap and take part in the process of making sap into syrup! Assist in the making of maple candy and take home both some syrup and candy to celebrate the sugaring season.
Even if you don’t have time to work in our sugar bush, you can support Farmpark’s maple program by adopting a tap for the season. You’ll receive a certificate of support, syrup, maple candy and recognition on our “Adopt a Tap” board.
