On Sunday, March 18, at 1 p.m., join Granby Land Trust Board Member Extraordinaire Dave Emery of Emery Farm for a hands-on demonstration of how maple sugar is made. Farmer Dave will follow an abbreviated process of sap collection, then transport through to boiling, filtering and bottling of the finished product. Each child should be accompanied by an adult and be prepared to taste some delicious Emery Farm maple syrup. This event is appropriate for children of all ages, but please leave your pets at home.   It will be outside for the duration, so please dress accordingly. The demonstration will take place at the Emery Farm Sugar House at 71 Loomis Street in North Granby. RSVP to Dave Emery at
