A Workshop for Beginner Maplers

Have you thought about making your own maple syrup? Do you want to know what is needed and learn how to do it? Then, here’s your chance to learn about all the steps from the tree to the table and the equipment needed. There will be a backyard Maple Sugaring Workshop geared to first-time and beginner maplers having less than 75 taps on on Thursday, March 4 at Richards Free Library, Newport, from 6 to 8 p.m. All aspects of maple sugaring will be covered, including tree identification, tapping, and collecting, boiling sap, and finishing, filtering, and packing syrup. Equipment and supplies needed, especially sizing and operating small evaporators, homemade and commercial, will also be discussed. This workshop is offered free of charge, but pre-registration is requested. To register or for more information, contact Chuck Hersey, Sullivan County Extension Educator, Forest Resources, at 603-863-9200 or email at chuck.hersey@unh.edu.
