Tour Sweet Sourland Farm in Hopewell during maple sugaring season. Visit the Katzenbach's forest, learn about tree biology and maple tapping, and observe maple tapping and processing in action. Visitors can also learn about the Katzenbach's innovative energy-conserving systems including solar panels and a rooftop solar water heater.

During muddy winter months parking is extremely limited on Sweet Sourland Farm. Visitors are encourged to park on the nearby Sourland Mtn Preserve parking lot on Featherbed Lane and carpool from there. Please arrive at the Featherbed parking lot at 12:45 for carpooling.

Visitors are advised to dress warmly with waterproof boots, as it is bound to be wet, muddy & cold. Children are welcome, but the tour would not be ideal for young children.

Sweet Sourland Farms is family owned & operated, offering forest and farm products for sale on a modest scale since 1956 including maple syrup, honey, meat goats, as well as lumber, pine and hardwoods grown and milled on-site.  We've had a long and abiding commitment to sustainable and organic agriculture and use solar, thermal, and PV renewable energy sources.
