Join Peterson’s for This Year’s Maple Weekend!

Mar 17, 2011 No Comments by

Visitors are welcome to tour most of the sugar houses for the duration of the maple sugar season, learning both about the syrup process and about the source of their food. However, a special NH Maple Weekend will be held this weekend, March 19 and 20, 2011. This event will allow visitors to watch the process from tree tapping and sap collecting to boiling down. Host Houses will show how modern technology has allowed the process to become easier and will talk about the history of this tradition.

Our local Sugar House, Peterson’s, will be host to visitors during this year’s Maple Weekend. Peterson’s, located right in Londonderry, NH at 28 Peabody Row, will be open from 12 to 5 both Saturday and Sunday. This is just minutes from the Massachusetts border and only 45 miles from downtown Boston.

Hank will show visitors how the sap is collected and turned to maple syrup using a wood-fired evaporator. Visitors are welcome to tour the sugar house and samples of sap, syrup, and more will be available. If you’ve never been, be sure not to miss this family event!
