Maple Syrup Day

March 3, 2013 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

| Free

Update: want to see what we did?  Check it out…

Join Slow Food Chicago and Spence Farm on Sunday, March 3 for a work day as we help with the maple syrup harvest. Spence Farm is the oldest family farm in Livingston County, Illinois, settled in 1830. Slow Food Chicago members will assist farmers Will, Kris, and Marty in all things having to do with maple syrup production.

We’ll be getting dirty here, folks, and doing chores like tramping through the mud, hauling firewood, moving heavy buckets, and more. You must be in excellent physical condition.  Attendees should dress appropriately for cold or warm weather, and for rainy or dry conditions. Bring boots and a sack lunch. We will work rain or shine.

The event is limited to 12 people. Click here to register!
