On Saturday, March 15, at 10:30 am, we are heading to Hancock to take a tour of Ioka Valley Farm’s maple sugaring operation, inside and out. Join us if you can! It’s fun for the whole family, and educational as well. We will be guided through the steps that turn maple sap into maple syrup, and learn about the different grades of syrup, while we sample the different grades to taste their differences. For those who wish to stay and enjoy a delicious brunch in the Ioka Calf-A, they will receive a coupon for 40% off brunch in the cafe good for March 15 or for the next day, Sunday, March 16. Tour participants will also receive a coupon from Wild Oats Market for $2 off any local product sold in the store (such as Ioka Valley Farm’s delicious 100% pure maple syrup!)
Ioka Valley Farm is located on Rt 43 in Hancock, about 1/2 mile from Jiminy Peak and 4 miles from the intersection of Rt 43 & Rt 22 in Stephentown, NY. Ioka Valley Farm is about 13 miles south of Wild Oats Market. Download directions to Ioka Valley Farm from Wild Oats Market.
