Open Sugar House

February 24 at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

Great Mountain Forest‘s sugar house will be open to visitors, provided there is enough sap to boil. The Forest has a 70-year tradition of collecting and boiling sap, making maple syrup and bottling it for sale; its collection system and evaporator are thoroughly up to date, but heat for boiling still comes from wood. GMF staff will be on hand to explain it all. We suggest visitors call ahead; as soon as they know, they will put a message on the forestry office answering machine (860-542-5422) indicating whether there is enough sap to boil. Cross your fingers!

Good news! We just got the following message from Great Mountain Forest: “The GMF Saphouse will be open Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. as scheduled. I’m collecting sap now, late Friday, and while it is barely enough, we will be there for some boiling on Saturday. Best bet is to come by noon before we run out of sap!”
