Maple Open House Weekend celebrates Vermont tradition and invites you to join in on the festivities as sugarmakers show off their craft throughout New England!
Bourdon Maple Farm will be boiling and offering tours of the sugarhouse throughout the day (no reservation required). Come learn how maple syrup is made - from the forest to the sugarhouse - and why organic, bird-friendly maple syrup is a more sustainable choice.
We'll have plenty of organic maple syrup and maple candy for sale as well as free tastings and a cozy outdoor fire pit to gather around. Meg will be making her famous buttermilk waffles both weekends and serving maple ice cream from the Mountain Creamery on March 25 & 26, and Sunny Day Scoops is bringing an ice cream cart with three delicious flavors, topped with maple syrup and maple sprinkles on April 1 & 2.
We'll have raffles with fun prizes from some of our favorite local businesses and games for the kiddos.
You can also explore our Maple Trail up into the sugarbush with your own snowshoes or by renting some at the sugarhouse. Trails will be marked with different routes available following our handy map. Along the way, keep an eye out for hidden tokens to win prizes!
Our forester, Pat Bartlett of Bartlett Forestry & Wildlife, is giving Forest & Wildlife Tours on Saturday, March 25 and Saturday, April 1 from 10am to 12pm. $20 for adults and $5 for kids. Please arrive at the sugarhouse right at 10am!
We couldn't be more excited to share Vermont's favorite spring tradition with all of you. Our sugarhouse was recently remodeled to make room for a new, larger evaporator so there will be plenty of room for visitors. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for more announcements about the events!
A map of all participating sugarhouses and establishments can be found at www.vermontmaple.org/mohw. We'll see you at the sugarhouse!
