Enjoy the Natural Sweetness of Maine's Maple Syrup
Pure Maine maple syrup with a hint of the great north woods in it, has been brightening the flavor of fine, downeast food since long before the colonists arrived. Now, hundreds of years later, the quality is excellent, the degree of sweetness is fixed by law, and the uniquely delicious taste still varies as it always has. Sometimes the syrup is dark and rich, sometimes pale gold and delicate. It all depends on the soil and terrain, the wind and the weather, just like wine.
The tour stops have been chosen and preparations are being finalized for the 6th Annual Maple Mania to be held in southern Maine, June 9th -11th. A broad range of information regarding maple production, value added items and “beyond” will be on display at this year’s event. Many vendors will be present during the event offering equipment, supplies, and knowledge. Thursday is registration day. Friday is a full day of tours followed by an evening banquet. Saturday will conclude with technical sessions on a variety of topics.
Tours for this year’s Maple Mania will include: Merrifield Farm, Balsam Ridge, Coopers Royal Heritage Farm, Sweet Williams, Cumberland County Fair Sugar house and Museum, and Allagash Brewing Company. Mark your calendars for “Maple Mania 2016." It’s a great time to meet and talk with other sugarmakers in addition to all the event has to offer! Registration information will soon be available at www.mainemapleproducers.com or contact Eric Ellis at (207)-474-3887.
The new MMPA website- Coming Soon!
Coming in the spring of 2016, will be the new face of the Maine Maple Producers Association. Our new website will proudly showcase and promote the maple industry in Maine, from individual sugarhouses to the one and only-Maine Maple Sunday. Many thanks to the following sugarhouses for their help throughout this process: Maine Mountain Maple Products, North Star Orchards, Maine-iac Maple, Pingree Maple Products, Bruce Pierce, and Hilltop Boilers LLC.
Maine Maple Sunday, 2016!
Sugarhouses all over Maine, held Maine Maple Sunday this spring. What an exciting day for friends and families to get out and celebrate the arrival of spring with a trip to their local sugarhouse. Most sugarhouses gave out lots of free maple samples, gave educational tours, and held activities for people to do around the theme of Maple in Maine. It is estimated that between 75,000-100,000 people, almost a tenth of the population of Maine, visited a sugarhouse for open house events. Save the date for next year- March 26, 2017. We hope to see you again!
