Our Visitor Center
Welcome to Johnny Appleseed Country Tourist Center
Real Maple Syrup. It's one of the perks of living in New England. It's a farewell to winter, a welcome to spring -- and a delicious New England tradition. The process of collecting sap from seemingly sleeping trees, creating clouds of steam and producing that oh-so-sweet delicacy known as maple syrup marks the change in seasons in Johnny Appleseed Country. To see it happen, and taste the results, visit Hollis Hills Farm (pictured, right) in Fitchburg on weekends from mid-March into April, or stop by Heifer Farm in Rutland on March 7-8 and 14-15, where you can also enjoy the syrup on pancakes!
For more information on how syrup is made, visit www.massmaple.org/how.php. The following list of area sugar houses is from the same site. Just call before making the drive to check their inventory.
Our area is filled with places to get this delectable pancake topper! Stop by our visitor center between exits 35 and 34 westbound on Rt. 2 where we sell syrup from local sugar houses. Or check out one of the local sugar houses below:
Dave's Sugar House
Hollis Hills Farm
Usually open evenings and weekends.
Sweet Water Sugarhouse
