Breakfast goers are treated to yummy wheat and gluten-free pancakes (and a vegan option, too) smothered in NCOF's own maple syrup. Musical duo Michael Williams and Toni Lynn Washington will be performing jazz and blues, so feel free to dance along; it's the perfect way to burn off that sugar rush.

Maple Sugaring Past and Present Tours Maple Magic continues across the road from 9 AM to 2 PM at the Natick Community Organic Farm, 117 Eliot St, Natick MA 01760. Take a maple sugaring tour, learn about Native American and Colonial sugaring techniques, and experience how NCOF boils sap into syrup in its wood-fired evaporator. If you work up an appetite walking around the farm, stop by the main building to purchase maple themed foods, grilled cheese, and baked goods, or help yourself to our coffee/tea/cocoa bar. This event will be held rain or shine. Sugar Tour Prices: $8/person (cash or check), kids under 2 free; NCOF Crofter level members ($125) receive 3 free Maple Magic Day tour passes. More About Natick Community Organic Farm and Maple Sugaring Founded in 1975, The Natick Community Organic Farm is a nonprofit, certified-organic farm providing productive open space, farm products, and hands-on education for all ages, year-round. Every February, NCOF hangs collecting buckets on hundreds of sugar maple trees throughout Natick, Wellesley, Sherborn, and Dover. Sunny days in the 40s (Fahrenheit) and nights below freezing trigger the sap inside the sugar maples to run from the roots up to the buds. The Farm collects this sap with the help of youth and adult volunteers and concentrates it using its wood-fired evaporator. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. The start and length of the sugaring season is entirely weather-dependent, but usually lasts from end of February to the end of March. On average, the Farm produces 150-250 gallons of maple syrup a year, which it sells to the public to support its farming operation. Don't forget to buy some of our own syrup to bring home after your tour! For more information, visit www.natickfarm.org
