NWPA Maple Taste & Tour Weekend

The annual Maple Weekend began in 2005, and currently has 22 participating farms across Potter and Tioga Counties. The farms offer tours, demonstrations and the finest in pure maple products, and visitors learn about the interesting story of each farm and the unique processes developed by individual producers. Some farms fire with natural gas or fuel oil, while others use a traditional wood fire during the evaporation process. While most farms have gone to tubing and vacuum-pump systems, a fair number still hang some buckets in the trees, and a few have foregone central collection all together. Even the creation of products varies at each location, and range from maple salad dressing or barbecue sauce to jellies and homemade cookies to maple milkshakes or cotton candy. Each farm has a specialty and a recipe or two that have been passed down through the family over generations. The Erie County Sugar Houses to visit include: Hurry Hill Farm & Museum, Almost Home Family Farm, Casbohm Maple & Honey, Fort Lebouef Maple, and Maple Lane Maple Products. This event will take place on March 13th and 14th. For more information on this event please visit
