Stoney Ridge Farms is a 77-acre farm in the town of Farmington. Chris and Melinda met in 2004 and started selling sap from a small sugar bush of 400 taps, growing to an over 6,500-tap operation when they started making maple syrup in 2010. In 2013, they expanded the maple operation, built a new sugar house and installed state-of-the-art equipment, including an evaporator engineered and built by Chris.
Come out for some family fun on all four days of Maple Weekend at Stoney Ridge Farms. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., you’ll find the all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast of buttermilk and buckwheat pancakes in a heated tent with fresh maple syrup and maple sausage. The breakfast is $8 for adults at $5 for kids under 12. Sap tours and other events will be happening from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. all four days as well. Visitors can also visit the retail shop, where items such as maple syrup, maple cream, maple mustard, maple barbeque, maple hot sauce, maple cotton fluff and more can be purchased.
