Maple ‘SAPpenings’ in Tioga County!

Maple Syrup has been a locally made product in Tioga County for generations. Here is what is “SAPpening” during the two, 2019 New York State Maple Weekends, March 23, 24 and 30, 31. 

Sweetrees Maple, 761 Glen Rd., Berkshire, will be open all four days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for tours of the sugar shack and sugar bush, demonstrations, samples, and sales of a variety of maple products. Kids and adults will love learning about maple trees, seeing the “maple high- way” that brings the sap from the sugar bush to the sugar shack, and tasting sweet treats like maple cotton candy.

Just a few miles down the road in Berkshire, N.Y., visitors can enjoy The Berkshire SAPpe ing activities on Saturday, March 30, at the Berkshire Community Hall, Library, and Volunteer Station. The fun begins with a pancake breakfast, serving Sweetrees Maple syrup, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. 

Registration for a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk opens at 8 a.m. and the run begins at 9 a.m. Adults and kids can also enjoy a Craft Fair and Family Craft Projects beginning at 9 a.m. 

In Candor, at Tholhill Farm, located at 493 Catatonk Hill Rd., enjoy maple treats, demos, tours, and more from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. on March 23. 

On March 30, at 10 a.m. at Hamley’s Maple, located at 70 Frost Hollow Rd. in Barton, N.Y., enjoy maple demonstrations and Hamley’s celebrated pancake breakfast (free with donation suggested). 

These maple producers showcase the spirit of agriculture in Tioga County, a blend of tradition and innovation. Visitors to these farms will travel through beautiful countryside and charming towns for a unique and authentic experience, and top-quality, real maple syrup.
