Maple Sugaring season in the Northeast Kingdom typically lasts from four to six weeks, sometimes starting as early as late February and continuing into April.
Conditions must be ideal: warm, sunny days with temperatures rising above 40 degrees F (5 degrees C) followed by freezing temperatures at night. Maple sugaring is a part of our heritage -- Vermont's Northeast Kingdom is home to the world's largest maple sugar candy producer as well as many smaller family-operated sugarhouses. Many sugarhouses are open year long to visitors.
Maple Open House Weekend, annually scheduled in late March, is a great way to learn more about Maple Sugaring. Visit the many Northeast Kingdom sugarhouses participating in this event to get a first-hand view (and maybe even taste!) of how authenic Vermont maple syrup is made.
The Vermont Maple Sugar Makers' Association is also a wonderful resource for those who want to learn more about Maple Sugaring.
