Maine Maple Syrup

Maine maple syrup vacations in March brings promises of warmer days and tastes of Maple Syrup. Sugar Houses around the State including two in the Moosehead Lake Region are open for this traditional Maine Travel Event. For 31 years Maine Maple Sunday has attracted visitors to Maine for this free foodie fun event. Read on to learn more about Maine travel information for Piscataquis County and statewide links to this event. The fourth Sunday in March is the official weekend that you can visit sugar shacks which are open to the public and no charge.

Maple Syrup Production

Watch the production of sap and tour the facilities. Maine has the potential to be the number one state in syrup production with its vast land resources. Each spring, Maple Syrup producers hope to have a six week window of production. Maple sap flows are best with night time lows of 20F and day time highs of 40F. You can actually see rings around the trees in the snow as the trees warm up and the sap starts to flow.

Subzero and single digit temperatures below normal could delay production. A week of good temperatures will get the sap flowing through the lines or into buckets. Did you know it takes 30 to 50 gallons of sap to produce 1 gallon of syrup? There are several grades of Maine Maple syrup and are rated for taste and color. All which are on display for tasting at open houses.

Last year, we traveled to Breakneck Ridge Farm. Just a short drive from Greenville. The mountain scenery was beautiful crossing over flowing rivers and streams with ice  capped banks. Scenic landscapes revealing the changing of the seasons and the promise of warmer days.
We got to taste all kinds of delicious maple products and learn about syrup production. You will want to bring some money as the temptation will be great to purchase maple syrup items for sale. This Maine tour was educational, fun and included wildlife viewing of the buffalo. I had so much fun with Special T Adventures as my Maine Guide on this Tour which is now an annual spring trip.

We also enjoy breakfast at the Shirley Community Church features Baker’s Maine Maple Syrup is just 15 minutes out of Greenville. Dates may vary slightly. Planning a March weekend getaway in New England? This is a great spring adventure. Plan a weekend vacation in Maine this spring and include a Maple Syrup event and enjoy the sights and tastes of Maine.
