Celebrating the staple that is maple

WEST CHAZY Once again the snowy weather put a damper on any of the West Chazy Maple producers hopes of participating in the first of two New York State Maple Producers weekends. But as Earl Parker of the Parker Family Maple Farm said, the way the sap is running this weekend more than makes up for it! This years celebration was the 12th annual Maple Weekend sponsored by the Western New York State Maple Producers Association. Here in the North Country, producers expected to be open for the second weekend, March 24-25. As Wayne Brow, of Brows Sugarhouse explained, northern producers just cannot count on the cooperation of the weather to schedule open houses before that. In all there are about 120 maple producers across New York State that host open houses for the public to get a chance to see and sample maple syrup and other products being made.
