Sprague’s Maple Farms is pleased to offer your class a tour of the maple syrup production facilities here in Portville, NY. We have two production tours for you to choose from. Our tours are generally geared for approximately 20 students.
Tour involves a considerable amount of time outdoors. Both tours give an age appropriate, detailed discussion of the process of making syrup and students will come away with a better understanding of how syrup gets from the tree to the table. In addition to being able to choose the type of tour you would like your students to have, you also have two breakfast selections.
At the end of your visit here each student will be given a gift certificate for a free Patty-Cake breakfast, redeemable at a future visit. However, Sprague’s reserves the right to alter the tour due to weather conditions at the Sugarbush.
