Willis Family Maple Farm to hold open house

IRON RIVER—Willis Family Maple Farm (established in 2018) invites the community to an open house event on Saturday, March 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The open house will include complimentary coffee and snacks, tours of the maple syrup production facility, free samples and bottles for purchase.
    “We’re looking forward to showcasing our syrup operation,” said Ken Willis, owner of Willis Family Maple Farm.
    “We’re using state-of-the-art equipment, and have around 4,000 taps with more to come, so this is a scale of production few folks will ever get to see.”
    The event will be held on site at 168 Larson Road, just north of U.S. 2 in Bates Township.
    The event is free to attend, and both individuals and families are welcome. For more information on this and other community events, visit or call the Chamber of Commerce at 265-3822.
