Area Activity Guide: Adopt a Maple

An Experiential Gift

If you’re in search of a unique gift for the outdoorsy Rochesterian who truly has everything (or insists on buying his or her own adventure gear), Kettle Ridge Farm has the answer. The 2019 Adopt a Maple program is now open, offering foodies and nature enthusiasts the opportunity to cultivate a delicious and educational relationship with a maple tree. It might sound odd, but it’s actually amazing.

Recipients enjoy all the fruits of the maple harvest while also supporting a small, sustainable local farm. Those who opt for the Plus package also get to tap their own tree, take part in an amazing pancake breakfast, and score two tickets to the annual KettleFest celebration in the Fall. Adopt a Maple (not to mention all the other great programming at Kettle Ridge) makes it easy to experience nature up close and personal, even for residents who live in the heart of the city.
