Join friends and family for another season of Sugaring Off Sundays at The Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown, New York.  The weekly event begins March 3 and continues each Sunday through March 24 offering contemporary and historic maple sugaring demonstrations, activities for the kids, and much more. A full pancake breakfast including scrambled eggs, sausage, and home fries is served from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and features local syrup provided by the Otsego County Maple Producers. All other activities run from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

There is fun planned for everyone each Sunday throughout the museum grounds. Taste hot maple syrup poured over snow, known as jack wax. Children can learn how to tap maple trees. See Bump Tavern’s kitchen in action as our interpreters prepare maple cake baked in a restored 1870’s cook stove. Watch our talented craftspeople in the Blacksmith Shop each Sunday—creating a waffle maker based on an example found in our collection. Make a stop at the pharmacy or the print shop, and the schoolhouse. Warm up as you ride the Empire State Carousel inside its heated enclosure. Wagon rides around the historic village run from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (weather permitting). Visit our farm animals at the Children’s Barnyard. Todd’s General Store will be open with hand-crafted items that will transport you back in time. Both museum stores are open from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
