THE PANCAKE BREAKFAST

What would a Maple Syrup Festival be without a delicious pancake breakfast?  Enjoy a home-cooked pancake breakfast from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. topped with maple syrup harvested from trees on our own grounds.  While the festival is free, there is some cost for the pancake breakfast.  We'll announce pricing and how you can register soon.
