This Weekend Kicks off NH's Maple Sugaring Month
Published Friday, March 10, 2017

The NH Maple Producers Association is hosting NH's Maple Sugaring Month from March 11 to April 2 and the 22nd Annual Maple Weekend on March 25 and 26.

Sugar houses across the state will welcome visitors to experience traditional maple sugaring. On weekends throughout the month, NH sugar makers are opening their doors, with many offering free tours, samples and family-friendly activities. Click here for a map of the full list of participating sugar houses.

Maple Month offers visitors a connection to the farms and families making maple syrup and a close look into how that syrup is made. Since maple sugaring is a centuries-old tradition, the craft of gathering sap in buckets and boiling sap over a wood fire has evolved over the generations. Today, many NH maple sugaring families use modern maple technology, such as tubing systems and reverse osmosis, to produce syrup. During Maple Month and Maple Weekend, visitors can experience how maple syrup is made, from the tap to the table, through demonstrations on tree tapping, sap gathering and boiling.
