 Maple

As the snow slowly melts and the first buds of spring start to appear, Massachusetts farmers turn to the trees for that sweet amber nectar that makes pancakes scrumptious. March is Massachusetts Maple Month and maple sugaring events are already underway. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation is hosting maple sugar days at parks across the Commonwealth.  Head out to one of these events to learn first-hand how maple sugar is made and “tap”  into this annual sugar rush!
