Maple Sugaring Tour at Ioka Valley Farm

In New England, maple sugaring is a late-winter tradition. Would you and your family like to meet some real sugar-makers and watch how maple sap is transformed into pure maple syrup? On Saturday, March 9 at 10:30 am we will meet at the Sugar House at Ioka Valley Farm in Hancock, MA for a tour of Ioka’s maple sugaring operations. We’ll watch how the sap flows from the trees into the sugar house, where it is boiled in evaporators; and we’ll learn about the different grades of syrup. All tour participants will receive a coupon good for 40% off a delicious meal or snack in the Ioka Cafe that day; and a Wild Oats coupon good for $2 off the purchase of any local product of $10 or more. The visit to Ioka has become a fun yearly tradition at Wild Oats Market and we hope that you can join us. Children welcome (must be accompanied by adult); all are welcome to join us for this tour. Preregistration helps with our planning; to register call (413) 458-8060 or email
