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.
Here’s a cool fact: several of our dairy farmers are also maple producers! Last year, 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 her visit.
