What is Maple Weekend? It's a chance for you to come to the farm and learn about New York’s maple sugar making processes and traditions, plus you can taste pure maple syrup in its many forms – right from the source.  It's presented by the New York State Maple Producers Association, along with the New York State Department of Agriculture.  Let's not let St. Patrick's Day weekend overshadow the fact that you can experience all of what Maple Weekend has to offer.

It's not just Western New York, but all over the state of New York you can experience Maple Weekend this weekend March 17-18 and next weekend March 24-25. It began in 1995 as a single “maple Sunday” and has grown into the four day, two weekend event.

Tours and product samples are offered at most sites free of charge. Many locations are rustic and most will be muddy so dress in layers and wear closed-toe or insulated footwear.

Have fun!
