Experience a taste of the “sweet world of maple sugaring” as part of the New York Maple weekend here at CCE’s Agroforestry Resource Center. The event will provide an opportunity to learn about sugar mapling procedures, including demonstrations in our own sugar shack, fun “maple syrup” taste testing, and displays of antique maple sugaring equipment. There will be information about the Greene County Maple Producers Association and an opportunity to buy maple sugar products from these diligent local agriculture producers. Delicious pancakes with pure maple syrup will also be available for sale in case you get hungry. Plan on joining us to participate in this annual spring ritual in the Northeast representing a few weeks of intense labor that leaves behind a year’s worth of healthy sweetness.
Cost: Free
