Visit Madava Farms This Maple Season
Welcome to Madava Farms, the Home of Crown Maple
It's an exciting time of the year on the farm. Maple season has just come to an end and the bountiful spring and summer seasons at Madava Farms are right around the corner. Our six acre chef's garden is being prepared for 2013's planting and Farmer Scott Boggs has another surprise addition to the farm this year - a fruit orchard featuring apples, pears, peaches and more.
Visit Madava Farms on Saturdays and Sundays through mid-December from 11 am until 5 pm. Join us for a walk in the woods, maple tour, artisan lunch or special event.
We're excited to share our fascinating sugarmaking process with you. Enjoy the seasonal menu in The Farm Stand Cafe and get a first hand view and taste of Crown Maple's organic syrup operations.
The farm looks towards the first signs of spring with a special weekend event coming up soon - a Ramps (Spring Onion) Foraging Excursion on May 4-5. Learn about this early spring wild crop and accompany our farmer out into the forest to pick your very own. Back at the sugarhouse, you'll get some great cooking tips for using them at home and enjoy a great lunch with ramps as a key ingredient. Look for more spring and summer events to unfold soon.
Enjoy walking Madava's trails to experience the beauty of winter outdoors while the forest works overtime to produce its sweet crop. Surround yourself with the native bird and wildlife species that thrive in our sustainably managed, dynamic eco-system. Hike the challenging path up Madava Peak. Inspirational panoramic views stretch over the valley and beyond.
Indoors you'll be fascinated by how temperature and terroir create maple, one of the earth's sweetest natural crops. Guided tasting tours are fun for all ages, illuminating the miles-long path Crown Maple Syrup makes in a single day from tree to barrel.
Taste why Crown Maple's certified organic syrup has been called quite possibly the purest on earth and visit our new tap-holed maple tasting room for a glimpse into hand-bottling and sugar making operations.
Savor a chef-prepared, farm to table lunch at The Farm Stand, Madava's eclectic eatery and market. Each week's menu features seasonal ingredients from Madava's own rustic chef's garden and other local farm partners. Expand your palate with a drink from our curated collection of craft brews and wine. Take home freshly picked produce from the farm's vegetable garden, Crown Maple Syrup & Sugar, and other New York artisanal specialties designed to delight and inspire.
Special farm events and nature excursions create unique memories and culinary inspiration. Jump in the car or hop on the train - Madava is just 75 miles north of Manhattan, and makes an easy getaway from New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.
With activities and events throughout the year, we hope you'll return often to discover the magic of each season at Madava Farms.
