Maple Syrup Open Houses & Events

This March is the time to plan a visit to a sugar house and gain an appreciation for the ancient art of making syrup from the sap of maple trees. Maple sugaring, which takes place mid-February to the end of March, starts with tapping maple trees and slinging collection buckets from them to collect the sap. It take 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup! Collected sap is brought to the maple sugar house to be boiled until it reaches the syrup stage. It’s then poured off, strained and cooled for bottling.
