March is Massachusetts Maple Month!
Walk where we tap trees, pick up maple syrup, and enjoy the outdoors
Since you’ve been inside staying safe from COVID and the winter weather, it’s easy to come down with house-atosis. Yes, I made that name up. But it feels real. And the cure is simple: get out of the house and into fresh air.
It’s during March that people usually come to the farm for sugaring season. Since COVID is still a thing, we’re switching it up. Instead of our usual open house, we’re having a March Across Hardwick on Sunday, March 14, 21, and 28th from 11-4.

You can also pick up maple syrup at many area locations, including:
The Country Gourmet, Barre, MA
Rose32 Bread, Gilbertville, MA
Hardwick Farmer’s Coop, Hardwick, MA
Hartman’s Herb Farm, Barre, MA
Howe’s Farm Stand, Paxton and Holden, MA
Mimi’s Coffee House, Hardwick MA
Petersham Country Store, Petersham, MA

If it’s any other month than March and you want to stop by, give a call first at (413) 477-0932 to make sure we are here to greet you. There’s not much to see off-season other than a quiet sugar shack, but hey, we are happy to sell you the sweet stuff all year ’round.
