Honey Extraction and Tasting @ Great Road Farm & Garden (previously Agway)
Sep 30 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

 

Come and see the sticky process of extracting honey! During this hands-on session, attendees will participate in extracting the honey from a local beehive. The steps include removing a thin layer of wax, or de-capping, the honeycomb, spinning the honeycomb in frames using an extractor, filtering the honey, and then…tasting it! Children are welcome with their parents.

Learn the craft of making maple syrup (Part 1 of 2) @ TBD
Oct 14 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Join us for one or both of this 2-part class to learn the craft of making maple syrup! Learn how to identify sugar maples, prepare for the spring flow, and turn your sap into delicious golden syrup (and more!).

Part 1 will be an outdoor walk (rain or shine, come prepared). Learn how to identify sugar maples in the fall so you know which trees to tap in the spring. We will discuss the different types of equipment used by backyard maple sugarers and you’ll walk away with a list of all you need to prepare for the spring flow.

Part 2 (see separate sign-up) will be a hands-on learning day (also rain or shine). We’ll walk through the process of collecting sap and show you how to make it into syrup.

Presented by: Jennifer Wilson. Address will be provided prior to class date.

Children ages 5-12 are invited to join us for a class about BUGS!! Did you know bugs like to eat vegetables as much as people? Come find out who bugs the plants at Littleton Community Farm! Join us for a story, craft, and a bug hunt in the field. We will read a story about bugs, and learn that there are many types of garden insects. Some are friends in the garden, and other are pests. We will go on a bug safari in the farm field, and do a fun craft. This is a rain or shine event so dress appropriately.

Just in time for the holidays and cold/flu season, learn how easy and affordable it is to make your own chicken and vegetable stocks and how to cook with them!
