In celebration of Maine Maple Sunday, enjoy fresh, hot pancakes and sausage, served with Norlands’ own maple syrup, in the historic farmer’s cottage. Sap boiling demonstrations take place in the sugar house. Help tap trees and collect sap. Meet the school’marm in the one-room schoolhouse who will encourage you to practice your mental arithmetic and penmanship using a quill pen under her watchful eye. It’s all in fun! Bring snowshoes or sleds and enjoy the beautiful 445 acres at this National Historic Site. Make sure to stop by the gift shop to purchase Norlands’ own maple syrup and other maple treats to take home.
The only charge is $5-$7 for pancakes and sausage; otherwise the event is free. No reservations are necessary.
