Londonderry to Host NH Maple Weekend Event

Mar 23, 2012 No Comments by

With temps in the eighties this week here in Londonderry, it's very unlikely this will be the scene during NH Maple Weekend this year. This image of Peterson's was taken four years ago on March 28 during a snowstorm.

A stop at Peterson’s Sugar house is a great outing for the family. This sweet gem will be host to visitors during NH Maple Weekend, set to take place this weekend, March 24 and 25, 2012. Peterson’s, located here in Londonderry at 28 Peabody Row, is right near Exit 4 on Route 93, just 45 minutes from Boston. A wonderful place to stop in on the way home from New Hampshire outings.

Throughout the weekend, kids will get a chance to see the sap drip, drip, dripping from the spouts in our local maple trees and try samples of sap, syrup, cream, candy and much more! 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 from 12 PM until 5 PM both Saturday and Sunday.

If you do stop in, pick up some real Londonderry Maple Syrup. It is all natural, organic, delicious on ice cream, baked apples, hot and cold cereal, pancakes, waffles, French toast and fruit. Use Peterson’s Maple Syrup instead of sugar when baking cakes, pies and muffins. Or do like Hank does, pour some over warm pecans.

If you’ve never been, be sure not to miss this family event!
