Think Spring! There’s no better sign that spring is right around the corner than when sap starts running through the majestic maple tree. Dairy Discovery is joining with Wittenbach Wege Center, in Lowell, to celebrate with a Maple Syrup Festival.

Start at the Wittenbach Wege center on March 9th at 9 am. Enjoy a fundraiser pancake and syrup breakfast then travel the trails of the WWC and go back in time and learn how maple sap was harvested and processed by both Native Americans and early settlers with the Lowell Historical Museum and WWC Naturalists.

Afterwards, drive over to SwissLane Specialty shop to see maple syrup being processed in real time! Take a hayride back to our maple trees, where you’ll see sap being collected in sap buckets or through our modern “lines.” Come into the Sugar Shack and see the machines we use to boil the sap and produce and package our delicious syrup. Shack will be open 11-3. Please dress warm and appropriately. Spring also means muddy trails.

Their fun is from 9-1

Just coming straight to the farm? $3/person- 112877 84th St. SE, Alto, MI. 49302
