A Sweet Season of Maple and Pancakes at Hale Farm & Village

For Immediate Release, Bath, Ohio — Enjoy a pancake breakfast and experience the process of maple sugaring past and present at Hale Farm & Village on March 9, 10, 16 and 17, 2019.

After a hearty pancake breakfast (including pancakes, sausage, fruit, coffee, juice and milk) provided by Acme Fresh Markets, the maple sugar experience begins. The 19th century village is open to experience tree tapping, oxen demonstrations, a sugaring camp, maple treats and the process of boiling sap into syrup. Historic crafts and trades including glassblowing, blacksmithing, spinning and weaving are also demonstrated throughout the day.

C. O. Hale, the grandson of Western Reserve pioneer Jonathan Hale had a keen interest in all aspects of farming, including tapping the Sugar Maple trees on this farm. He supervised maple syrup production from his sugaring chair, on display in our Gatehouse Visitor’s Center. Custom-built to his specifications, the tall chair allowed C. O. to view the boiling of sap from the perfect vantage point, high above the steaming evaporation pan.

“C.O. Hale was a true entrepreneur, he used the Maple trees on the family farm to provide sap to be processed and sold. Guests at the festival will be able to learn this history first hand,” explains Jason Klein, Director at Hale Farm & Village.

The Marketplace at Hale Farm & Village will be open for shopping during the festival, featuring Ohio made maple products including syrup, candy, sauces and snacks. Handcrafted at Hale hand-blown glass, pottery, iron work and wool items will also be available along with many other Ohio made and maple sugar season souvenirs.

The museum is open from 10am to 4pm, admission for breakfast and all activities is $15 for adults (13 years and older), $10 for children (3 – 12 years of age), $5 for members and $5 for the pancake.
