Maple Sugaring

    In March, come to Up Yonda and discover the craft that has become a legend in the northeast. As the sun begins to warm the trunks of sugar maple trees, sap starts to flow. This marks the start of the sugaring season in the Adirondacks. Join us for Maple Sugar Basics and enjoy the process that yields sweet reward! We'll tap, collect, and boil the sap of sugar maples on the property. We'll cover all the steps to get from sap to syrup. Our new sugar house makes this popular program even better!
