Order you sap-tap kit and plan to participate in the Kingfield Community Sap Tap (and pancake breakfast!)
Combine your efforts (and your sap!) and let’s make maple syrup! Register now and pick up a Tree Tapping Kit from the front desk of MLK Park and go pick it to be ready for the sap run. Go home and wait for the message to tap a tree on your personal property (note, trees must be larger than 10 inches in diameter for it to not harm them). We will notify you when the sap looks ready to start, and we have volunteers who are willing to come help you tap your tree if this is your first time and you are nervous.
Note, the date of the event is weather dependent! We don’t know what day the boil will be on until the sap begins to flow but right now we are planning the day-long boil for March 25!
When sap buckets are full, they should be dropped off at the park where it will be stored until we will have an outdoor communal syrup making party; participants will be able to sign up for a shift of syrup making, and will get to take a jar of syrup home with them too!
