Maple Season in New England

It’s officially maple season throughout New England! Maple sugaring season usually begins in late February and ends in early April. Without doubt, March is the best time to experience the maple sugaring process throughout the region.

Did you know several of our dairy farmers are also maple producers? Recently, blogger and New England lifestyle influencer The Coastal Confidence visited Richardson Family Farm in Vermont to learn how they care for their cows to make delicious, wholesome milk and also how they make delicious maple syrup! Learn more about this cool experience.

And if you’re looking for an up close and personal maple sugaring experience, there are several maple open houses and events coming up throughout the region.
