One of the most popular annual traditions returns to the Great Western Catskills – Maple Weekend!

Maple Weekend takes place this year on March 19-20 and March 26-27 at locations all across New York State. This is an amazing chance for the public to come to the farm to learn about New York’s maple sugarmaking processes and traditions and to provide a chance to taste pure maple syrup in its many forms – right from the source. This event is organized and sponsored by the New York State Maple Producers’ Association.


Come taste a pure and natural food product at its freshest and in its many forms, learn how maple syrup and other maple confections are made and experience the unique family traditions of making maple syrup in New York State.

During Maple weekend, you can meet the producers who annually make New York the second largest maple producing state in the U.S and share in the many ways to cook and bake with maple syrup, maple sap and other maple drinks and products.

Below is a list of participating sugarmakers in Delaware County. Be sure to visit your local producer and witness sustainable agriculture at its best. For more information, visit the New York State Maple Weekend website.

We’d love for you to join us in Delaware County during the two Maple Weekends held on Saturday, March 21st and Sunday, March 22nd and then again on Saturday, March 28th and Sunday, March 29th. See the participating farms below and check the official website to make sure all scheduled events are being hosted as scheduled.

Maple Production in New York State

New York State is home to the largest resource of tappable maple trees within the United States, and over 2,000 maple sugarmakers.  As an abundant and sustainable crop, New York’s gourmet maple industry is vibrant and growing on an annual basis.

Our state’s unique climate and forestry make it naturally perfect for maple syrup production. This pure, additive-free sweetener is made simply by removing water from the sap to concentrate the natural sugars and nutrients made by the tree.

Maple production tends to be a community endeavor, many times involving the entire extended family working together to accomplish one common goal: to produce a pure, all-natural maple syrup that they can take pride in calling their own.  The gourmet maple syrup and granulated sugar that come as a result are delicious additions, and dare we say necessities, to any kitchen worldwide.
