    You are cordially invited to the 21st Annual Maple Syrup Festival at Leane and Michael's Sugarbush!  This free festival (except for wares and food that are available for purchase) is a great time!  Bring the family and wear sturdy walking shoes.  Speaking from experience, you will not want to miss this and the delicious homemade syrup. 

    Imagine a scenic valley tucked between two wooded hills, an ice and snow-covered creek running nearby, and steam billowing from the tall smokestack of a large, low barn.  The sap gathered from the nearby maple trees is being boiled down into thick, sticky, pure syrup, soon to be enjoyed by a family on their pancake breakfast. A scene from New England or Canada?  That is often what comes to mind, but you can enjoy this craft, rich in history, without even leaving Indiana.

    The festival includes activities for all ages – food served all day, FREE tours of our syrup making operation, Native American and pioneer demonstrations of maple syrup making, our store with 2012  pure maple syrup to purchase (and a large variety of other items), many children’s activities and games, mule drawn wagon rides, craft vendors, live music and more.  There is NO parking fee or entrance fee for the festival!!!  We take all major credit cards in the store and dining room.

    Visit the website at for more information about this family business and the Annual Maple Syrup Festival.   Festival dates for 2012 are February 25 & 26 and March 3 & 4, 9am - 5pm daily.  Come and join the fun, sweet time!!!
