Maple Sugaring in Connecticut
Plumes of smoke and steam rise from evaporators in hundreds of sugarhouses all across Connecticut this time of year. Local sugar makers and their many loyal customers eagerly look forward to this annual rite of spring.
The traditional maple sugaring season in Connecticut extends from early February until late March, depending greatly on the weather. Freezing nights and warm, sunny days are necessary to provide good sap yields.
During the sugaring season, maple producers welcome adults and children interested in observing the maple sugar making process. Watch how sap is gathered and boiled, and smell the hot steam rising off the evaporator. You can purchase maple syrup and other maple products during the sugaring season and throughout the year at many sugarhouses.
Visit Connecticut during maple syrup season – there are several special Maple Sugar events throughout the state this spring! For more information on spring activities in Connecticut, visit www.CTvisit.com.
