March is Maple Month! Check out the sugarhouses with events near you!
I’m out to breakfast with my sister the other day when she whips out a small Tupperware container from her purse and sets it on the table. “That’s my syrup,” she says. “I can’t eat pancakes without real maple syrup.”
Well sister, this month is for you! March is affectionately known as Maple Month around these parts and there’s plenty of authentic maple products to be found. Check out all the sugarhouse tours, shopping and family fun happening around the Seacoast this month!
New Hampshire Maple Month
The NH Maple Producers Association hosts Maple Sugaring Month in March 2023 when sugar makers statewide open their doors inviting the public to share in the centuries-old craft of maple sugaring. Many will be offering free samples of fresh syrup, maple candies and confections, coffee and doughnuts. Some locations have pancake breakfasts, petting farms or horse-drawn rides.

If you can’t make it here while we are open, you can now purchase right from our website. We ship or you can do curbside pick up any time.
We’ll have over 600 taps this year. Still small enough to pay attention to detail but we also have enough taps to be able to keep up pretty well with local demand. We use a traditional wood-fired evaporator and although we have not gone through the official paperwork to be Certified Organic, our farm, our process, and our outlook are all 100% friendly with the nature surrounding us. We plan to complete the organic certification by next year. Come taste the difference!
We also carry a ton of extra maple supplies for any local producers in a pinch or customers interested in making their own syrup. Stop by, call, email or text if you have any requests. Taps, tubing, filters, etc. all on hand.
