This weekend many local Maine maple syrup operations will open their doors for an open house to the public.
To invite you in to see how much maple tree sap it takes to boil down, evaporate to make the golden elixir that tastes so devine on home made pancakes. I drove by the Spring Break maple sugar shack operation on US Rt 2 in Smyrna after taking a real estate listing in Patten Maine.
I saw lots of activity inside the Maine sugaring operation and from this website see this weekend an open house is planned. You’ll see they also have honey bee nectar sweetness available to purchase too. See the nearest Maine maple sugar syrup operation to visit soon. Check the site link for a list of open house times, dates for the Maine maple syrup bottling operation nearest you in Vacationland.
The syrup running in Maine maples and the bucket collection or more sophisicated tubing with gravity doing its job from a grove is a sight to behold.
Especially for little ones or field trips from schools to taste a treat naturally, not artificially made in Maine.
It also signals a spring tradition in Maine, like canoe races. Make plans to visit Vacationland and sample some of the outdoor wholesome goodness and fill your lungs with fresh spring air. Other fun things to to in Aroostook County, that borders Canada on the east below in map form.
