Maple sugaring season is quite possibly New England’s quickest and sweetest, and we celebrate our local heritage and flavor with our third annual Sugar Shack Supper.
For this ultimate cabin fever reliever, you can watch the small batch sugaring process upon arrival while enjoying a welcome beverage in our new porch space. A leisurely “slow food” dinner follows in the warmth of our cozy post and beam event barn.
We’ve partnered with Abigale & Michael of Trillium Caterers, a Belfast-based chef and event team to serve the ultimate five-course Maine Maple Dinner featuring items such as shaved winter salad, hot smoked salmon with maple mustard seed, Maine maple butter tarts, and more.
We are also really excited to welcome Maine Beer Company to the farm for the first time and offer some delicious brews during the event.
Tickets for each event are $95 per person (includes snacks, Hammerschlagen, 5 course meal, welcome beverage, gratuity). We will celebrate your arrival to our our farm with a complimentary house cocktail or non-alcoholic beverage crafted especially for this event. A selection of wine, Maine Beers, and additional cocktails will also be available for purchase throughout the evening.
For musical entertainment, we will welcome DJ Hi-Duke to the farm who will keep the party going with some of the best authentic funk, soul, jazz and boogie music around.
Space is limited each evening so grab your pals and make it an adventure. We hope you will join us!
Cocktail hour begins at 6 pm on the Barn Porch. Dinner in the Barn to follow at 7 pm.
Sensible Shoes. Leave the fancy shoes at home (it is mud season of course). This is a casual affair and there will be outside opportunities to mingle and enjoy the fresh air. Wear layers.
Weather. We will only cancel the event in the case of the most severe weather. Should this occur, the "snow date" will be a lunch on Sunday (which is super legit as this is of course, Maine Maple Sunday).
Sorry, no refunds. All ticket sales are final and we do not offer refunds. You may transfer your ticket to another person if you are not able to attend - we require the contact info for the person who will be attending in your place.
Wee ones. We welcome guests of all ages at the Sugar Shack Supper - please know that we do require a full price ticket for all humans at the table. It is a slow, leisurely meal and may not be suitable for young children - but we leave that up to you.
Wait list. We will create a wait list when tickets sell out. Please do not email us for this as it is very hard to keep track of all the moving parts- sign up via this link and you will be contacted if a spot opens up.
Photo release. We take photos of our beautiful events and use them in our farm marketing, as well as sharing them with media outlets. Tops'l Farm reserves the right to use any photograph/video taken at this event sponsored, without the expressed written permission of those included within the photograph/video. If this is an issue, please get in touch with us prior to the event.
Some legalese. Many of our events are adventures in the woods and on the farm and require an adventurous spirit and the understanding that they may require a bit more risk than a dinner at your local restaurant. With that said, please review the following:
