Maple Sugaring: In March the maple trees in the North begin to send nutrients to the top of the trees and we begin the age old business of tapping and collecting Maple sap, processing it into" Maple Syrup " that we all enjoy on our pancakes and waffles. Throughout Northern NH we have several " Sugar Makers " who are actively involved in this business. If you give us a call we can refer you to many of these operations which have been carrying on a tradition that has lasted since the first settlers arrived in this area in the late 1700S.
New Hampshire is proud of it’s maple sugaring history. In the 1850S we made more than 2500 gallons of Maple Syrup in the town of Stark NH and it was common for all of the surrounding towns to make a similar quantity. That syrup was used for the sugar needs of most families throughout the year.
