No Sugaring Sundays

At Farmers’ Museum

COOPERSTOWN – The latest victim of COVID-19 is “Sugaring Off Sundays,” a beloved springtime staple at The Farmers’ Museum.

The museum announced Friday it has cancelled the pancake feasts, usually held each Sunday in March, as a precautionary measure, but plans are to resume it in 2022.

The Farmers’ Museum will reopen for its regular season on April 1, observing the same safety protocols as in 2020. Meanwhile,. visit FarmersMuseum.org/virtual.

PANCAKES, MORE EACH SUNDAY IN MARCH

Sugaring Off Sundays Here?

Spring Can’t Be Far Behind

Temperatures in the teens made it look like The Farmers’ Museum volunteer Steve Davis (top photo) was walking on a cloud, as he manned the syrup-making evaporator on the museum’s grounds on the shores of Otsego Lake, Cooperstown, part of the demonstrations that accompanied the pancake, eggs and sausages that are all part of Sugaring Off Sundays, which are planned (this year, and traditionally) each Sunday in March.  How was the food?  Jase Moore’s face says all you need to know.  The 6-year-old (inset, right)  was attending from Hartwick.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
