Maple Syrup Making

Stowe, Vermont Maple Syrup Making

As the largest producer of pure maple syrup in the United States, Vermont is synonymous with maple syrup making, known as "sugaring." The sugaring season usually starts in early March and lasts for six weeks. Sugarmakers drill small holes in sugar maple trees, fit the holes with plastic or metal spouts to create "tapholes," and collect the sap with buckets or tubing. The sap is then transported to a sugarhouse, where it is boiled and processed to make the syrup. Nebraska Knoll Sugar Farm, family owned and operated by the Coty family, has been sugaring in Stowe since 1980. The sugarhouse is open to the public March through October and features maple products for sale and a display of photos and artifacts.
