Updates for October 2023
October 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.

Sugarbush Farm family is famous for its excellent waxed cheeses
and Pure Vermont Maple Syrup made here on our hillside farm. You
are invited to visit our 4 season farm attraction located in
Central Vermont. Savor the free samples of 15 varieties of
cheese, Pure Vermont Maple Syrup and Vermont made foods. You can
learn about maple syrup making with the sugar house tour, walk
the nature trail to see the sugar maple trees, make friends with
the farm animals in the summer, enjoy the lovely views and visit
with real farmers. March and early April finds the entire Luce
family busy making maple syrup. Maple sugaring is really family
time because we are spending many hours together in the
sugarhouse while Jeff, Ralph and Matt bring in the sap from the
sugar woods and boil it down to make our Pure Vermont Maple
As the weather warms for sap flows, the snow slowly
melts and Vermont's gravel roads turn to mud. If you visit
during mud season, be sure to wear your boots and hope your car
is high enough to get through the ruts and mud. Please call if
you have questions about road conditions. Precise weather is
required for making syrup. We need a cold night about 20 degrees
F and then a warm sunny day in the 40's and low 50's for good
sap flow. So we can never predict more than a few days ahead of
time which days we will actually be boiling maple sap. Also
check our Facebook page for maple sugaring and boiling updates.
We tap about 8,500 trees and hope to make about a quart from
each tree. We start making the Grade A golden color, delicate
taste (formerly known as the Fancy syrup) syrup at the beginning
of the season, then progress to Grade A amber color, rich taste,
Grade A dark robust taste and end with Grade A very dark strong
taste (formerly known as Grade B), just before the buds open and
the season ends. If you would like to visit, please call us at
800-281-1757 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will try to give you an idea of our sap boiling schedule.
Our sugarhouse is open every day even if we aren't boiling sap,
so you can tour and get a good idea of how it works. Walk on our
maple trail and see the buckets and sap lines. Watch how our sap
comes out of the tree and how it's collected. On March 24th-26th
our farm, along with others in the state, will celebrate
Official Maple Open House Weekend.
