Farms across the state open their doors to the public this Sunday for the traditional annual celebration of all things maple, from syrup samplings to sap boiling demonstrations to mouthwatering pancake breakfasts, such as the one pictured here at Cole Farm in Dayton in this photo from 2010.

The annual event is a showcase for the state’s maple syrup industry, with farms and sugarhouses hosting pancake breakfasts, syrup-making demonstrations, tours, wagon rides and other activities. Often, the demonstrations and tours are free, but pancakes, syrup and other items may be sold.
