Looking for local maple syrup orchards and sugarworks in Alberta? The website also has listings for every other state, tours, festivals, syrup making demonstrations, history, facts, related events and fun!" Just select your area in the list or map below.

June The new sapping season starts in late winter; typically from mid-March to mid-April in most maple-syrup producing areas, when temperatures are below freezing at night and above freezing during the day. Tours usually begin in early Spring! That's a great time to visit a maple sugar orchard or sugarworks and see a sugaring demonstration; watch them make maple syrup!
Where are Maple Syrup farms/orchards/sugarworks, etc.? Well, they're not in Hawaii or Florida, for sure. They are concentrated in the northeast and upper midwest in the US and the eastern half of Canada, even though maple trees do grow in the northwest.

so I've roughly adopted the Indian regions map, as it appears to group areas
by population centers as well as geography.
