Vibrant Places: Hike at Messenger Century Farm

March 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We are pleased to bring back our Vibrant Places tour series in 2019! Experience the Land Conservancy’s work first hand by hiking new trails, connecting with family farmers, and exploring cherished keystone properties.

Join us for the first hike of the year at Messenger Century Farm!

Join us for the first hike of the year at Messenger Century Farm! The 70-acre farm has produced syrup since the early 1800’s and three generations of the Belew family have worked diligently to maintain the sugar bush and operate a pick-your-own blueberry field on the historic property. The original sugar house, noted as the oldest sugar house in Geauga County, still stands! In 2010, a 1910 farm building was renovated into a new sugar house and utilizes the latest sugaring technology.

Join us for a family-friendly hike of the permanently preserved property and a tour of the behind-the-scenes sugaring process on this gorgeous land that Western Reserve Land Conservancy helped to conserve. We’ll end the tour with tasty maple-themed treats!
