Visit the farmhouse on Heckscher Farm and see how sap is turned into maple syrup. In addition to maple sugar demos and tree tapping, attractions include a sock skating rink, farm animals, music, food trucks, and a children's game zone. Special events include a brunch with Mickey and Minnie, a visit by Olaf from Frozen, and a meet and greet with Siberian Huskies.

The farm makes a unique line of maple syrup from the 200-plus mature maple trees found on the 118-acre campus. Additional offerings include free giveaways and traditional favorites like colonial and Native American demonstrations.

This year the festivities are bundled into a mini-festival with a single admission price, three Sundays this winter.
