WOODBURY — Where automation once redefined farming, The Farm, 161 Chohees Tr., is bringing people back into the mix to change mindsets when it comes to food and a sense of community. Michael Berecz told Voices, “We’re expanding local agriculture to include ways for families to be involved in what we’re doing.”
The Sugar Shed, 41 Washington Rd., is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through March, providing everyone the opportunity to see tree sap transformed into maple syrup.
“It’s a hidden gem in our area that has made it all around the world,” Mr. Berecz said. “There are bottles in Australia as gifts and it’s now being used as a marinade or in cocktails. It’s not just for pancakes anymore.”
