HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -- If you love real Michigan maple syrup you’ll want to head to Van Raalte Farms on two consecutive Saturdays, March 15th and the 22nd.  Maple Sugar Time means the sap will be flowing and the sugar shack steaming for this fun and tasteful spring ritual.  You can take part in tapping a tree, gathering sap and then visit the sugar house to see the nature center’s evaporator steaming away down in the sugar bush.  For the admission fee of one dollar, you’ll even get ice cream to pour the maple syrup over.   No registration is necessary.
