Maine Maple Weekend 2023 recap

Hours of operation after this weekend: when we are home, we are open! It always helps to call first to make sure we are here.   We have plenty of Maple syrup and Maple products in stock. CASH or CHECKS accepted

Despite crazy weather, we enjoyed seeing old friends and making new friends over this past 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!!

For the second year, in exchange for a sample of Maple syrup on ice cream, we have taken donations for the World Central Kitchen. World Central Kitchen is a not-for-profit non-governmental organization devoted to providing meals in the wake of wars and natural disasters.We raised more a $1000. this year. Thank you to all who donated.

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.
