The temperatures are rising and the sap is flowing in the Finger Lakes.  March is Maple Sugar month in New York.  Did you know that New York is the third largest maple sugar producer worldwide and the second largest producer of maple sugar in the United States?  There’s nothing that tastes any better than warm, home-made maple syrup over pancakes for breakfast. You can enjoy this too.  Maple Sugar Weekend is coming on the weekends of March 21 &  22, and March 27 & 28 with plenty of fun activities planned.  You’ll see demonstrations of collecting and boiling the sap, the production of the final maple sugar products and of course be able to taste too!
