Visit Sugar Maple Farms, Maple Weekend 2024!

Maple Weekend, one of the most popular annual traditions in New York State, returns to the Great Western Catskills on March 16-17 and March 23-24.

Maple Weekend invites the public to visit farms and learn about New York’s maple sugar making processes and provides a chance to taste pure maple syrup in its many forms – right from the source! Many farmers are carrying on family traditions, honoring age-old recipes and practices.

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 sugar makers 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.
