Maine Maple Fall Fest this weekend
The Maine Maple Producers Association will sponsor “Maine Maple Fall Fest” this Saturday and Sunday at producer venues across the state.
This event will be hosted with the Maine Fall Foliage as the backdrop, with producers adjusting events to comply with COVID-19 safety protocols. Some producers will host tours with explanations of maple syrup production from managing the woods, to tapping the trees and boiling sap, while others will offer curbside pickup and delivery options. Last year saw many producers adding direct to consumer web sales that are continuing today with contactless pick up and shipping options.
Participating sugar houses can be located at mainemapleproducers.com.
