Addison County SUGARHOUSES welcome visitors this weekend

Sugarhouses welcome visitors this weekend

Ten Addison County sugaring operations will open their doors to the public on Saturday, March 23, and Sunday, March 24, in conjunction with the Vermont Maple Sugar Makers’ Association’s 12th annual Vermont Maple Open House Weekend. This weekend event, when Vermont’s sugarmakers invite the public to their sugarhouses, gives visitors an opportunity to see how maple syrup is made and experience a day in the life of the sugarmaker.

“Visitors can often see the entire process, from tapping the tree to pouring finished syrup in a bottle,” said Matt Gordon, VMSMA executive director, “and connecting all those points in between that takes sap and makes it become maple syrup, really resonates with folks.”
