Visit the Fradette family's log cabin sugarhouse during Maple Open House Weekend! They're located on well maintained road just off Route 16 in East Hardwick. Bring your snowshoes and take a walk through our sugar woods along the roads named after their grandchildren. Return to the sugarhouse for maple treats including a fresh hot syrup sample, sugar on snow, maple soda, and other maple goodies. Warm up around the wood stove and visit with friends and family. Not up for a hike in the woods? No problem, gather around the arch and watch the sap boil (weather permitting) and smell the sweetness. Kid friendly and full description of the sugaring process to all visitors.
