Maple Open House Weekend – March 19 & 20

It’s that sweet time of year again! The days are getting longer, the snow is melting and the birds are singing, but best of all if you have a sweet tooth – the sap is running.

Sugar makers from across the region are busy boiling away. It’s hard work – did you know it takes 40 gallons of sap to make just one gallon of syrup? That makes it almost like liquid gold; well pretty darn precious at the very least…

This weekend, some sugar makers are inviting the public to visit their sugarhouses to watch this good stuff in the making. In Vermont, visit: and in New Hampshire visit: to find an open house near you!
