Whitehall Farm is located at 4633 U.S. 68 North; limited parking is available at the farm for those in need of special assistance. Attendees are asked to consider walking or biking. The event will be held rain or shine, but syrup making is weather dependent and not guaranteed. Those attending are asked to dress appropriately for the weather and muddy conditions. If extreme weather is predicted, the event will be canceled by Friday, Feb. 28.
