Registration is Now Open for Pancake Feast!
Join us for the 2018 MSU Tollgate Farm Maple Tapping and Pancake Feast, to be held March 10th and 11th. Visit the sugar bush and be involved in tapping a tree for sap, watch sap get cooked down into syrup in our sugar shack, and best of all, enjoy the real thing on a pipin' stack of flapjacks with a side of sausage, coffee, and hot cocoa!  

Registration is now open, and the event sells out fast, so register you and your family and friends now. We look forward to your joining us for what is sure to be another excellent syruping season!
