Maine Maple Weekend 2023

Hours of operation: March 25 12pm-5pm, March 26 9am-5pm   CASH or CHECKS accepted

We look forward to seeing old friends and making new friends on this weekend. For over 25 years we have hosted thousands of visitors for this celebration. Activities include sugar bush tours, sap house tours, free samples of Maple products and pure Maple items for sale, in a family friendly outdoor setting regardless of weather. Besides viewing how Maple products are made, customers enjoy visiting the barnyard animals as well as hiking the groomed sugar bush trails and savoring the smells, sights and sounds of this unique season of spring in New England. We hope customers are inspired to tap their home Maple trees and do their own “sugaring” in their backyard. We welcome visitors to join us and enjoy the sweet taste of spring in Maine. There is no better way to have fun during Mud Season!!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much sap does it take to make a gallon of syrup?

Forty to fifty gallons of sap will end up as only one gallon of syrup. And a Maple tree tapped for sap must be about 50 years old to be large enough. Each tree tap typically yields 10 gallons of sap per season.

Do you use the same hole every year?

The tap holes are moved each year not only horizontally, but also vertically. The holes are drilled at least 6” apart from previous holes.

Does it hurt the trees to take their sap?

Tapping a tree does create a wound, but it is a wound from which the tree can readily recover and does not endanger the health of the tree.
