To lift your spirits this cold and snowy winter, you can head south to Florida to bask in the sun – or stay here and be enrobed in the sweet scent of maple syrup being made!
March 15 to April 6 has been designated Maple Sugaring Month this year, during which time sugar houses state wide open their doors to the public to show how maple sugar is made. Visit demonstrations showing how gallons of freshly-tapped maple tree sap are transformed into maple syrup, maple sugar, and other great products.
On NH Maple Weekend, March 22nd and 23rd, over 100 participating maple sugar houses throughout the state will be showing how syrup is made, handing out free samples, and selling one of NH’s most popular naturally made products. Many sugar houses will be offering samples of maple candies, coffee, and doughnuts sweetened with maple syrup. There will be a variety of other activities, including horse-drawn rides, petting farms, and of course, pancake breakfasts.
