Maple Sugaring in the News

This past Sunday, February 21, we conducted a public program for folks interested in backyard maple sugaring.  Maple syrup is a sweet treat for many folks all around the country, but few people realize that it's possible for anyone with a maple tree in their yard to make their own syrup. 

The previous post covered the basic details of how to make maple syrup at home.  For all that attended this past weekend's program, they experienced the first steps in the process first-hand.  We identified, tapped, and hung collection buckets on 6 trees Saturday and 6 more trees on Sunday.  Suday's event was well attended (thanks to all of you who may have been there) and was covered by two reporters.  Click on here to see the article posted from the The Journal News and here to see the article from the Chappaqua-Mount Kisco Patch.

If you'd like to learn more about making maple syrup, please attend one of the programs listed in the menu section to the right.
