As part of the Vermont
Maple Open House weekend the Bennington County Sugarmakers will be
hosting our annual Maple Sunday (Weekend) on March 23-24, 2013. Saphouses
will be open to the public offering tours, activities, and free samples
of syrup. The sugarmakers are found in ten towns throughout the county
so theres bound to be one or two close to your place.
So put on your boots
and spend the day enjoying Vermont during this unique season. Visit
one or all of the participating sugarhouses as they partake in the
springtime ritual of transforming sap into maple syrup. Start the weekend off at the Bennington Catamount Rotary club's annual Pancake Breakfast fundraiser. Click here for more information.
