The coming of spring brings Westmoreland’s Annual Sugarfest. Now in its 12th year, we hope you will join us for a delicious homemade pancake breakfast with your choice of blueberry or plain pancakes served with 100% New York Maple Syrup. Hot sausage and fruit will also available. Guests will enjoy the music of The NannyHagen Creek bluegrass band playing during one of our seating’s. There are three seating times available. (See times and registration below).
Seating is limited so pre-registration is required by 3/9/17 to ensure your spot at our event. Walkins will be limited. We hope that you all come join us for this very special event.
Following each seating is our MAPLE SUGARING THROUGH THE AGES program. Join us as we take a look at the evolution of making maple syrup. We will explore the harvesting and processing techniques used by the Native Americans and early colonists. Please come relive what it was like to make maple syrup in the 1800s.
We’ll learn how to tap a tree and even test ourselves to see if we can tell the difference between 100% maple syrup and imitation syrup.
