The Sugar House

The Sugar House

Did you know? Part of the Nature Center at GCV&M is a working sugar house, where sap is collected from the Sugar Bush on our grounds and turned into real NY maple syrup! 

When you visit the Sugar House during our Maple Sugar Festival in March of each year, you’ll see the modern-day wood-fired evaporator in action, learn how much sap it takes to make one gallon of maple syrup, smell the sweet bubbling sap as it boils down into thick sugary syrup, and more. 

Maple products from the Sugar House are available for sale in the Flint Hill Store.
