MAPLE WEEKEND FOR THE SUSQUEHANNA AND JUNIATA RIVER VALLEYS

Tours and tasting will be available at three area sugar shacks on 6 and 7 March 2021, from 10 AM until 5 PM. Visitors will be able to see how sap is collected from the trees and turned into maple syrup, as well as purchase various maple products directly from the producers. 

This second annual maple weekend is hosted by the River Valleys Maple Syrup Producers Association (RVMSPA), an organization that falls under the umbrella of the Pennsylvania Maple Syrup Producers Council. Participating sugar shacks are:

*Paddy Mountain Sugar Shack at 1385 Paddy Mountain Road, Millmont

*Minehart Gap Maple at 30 Old Goss Lane, Lewistown

*Shade Stone Farm at 282 Markley Lane, Beaver Springs

Visitors are encouraged to bring their children to this educational and tasty event. They are reminded to dress for the cold and possible snow or mud, as the activities are primarily outdoors. There are tours available inside each sugar shack to see the syrup being made, plus an optional trip into the sugar bush (or woods) to see the various sap collection methods. Each producer will have products for sale. There is no cost to attend the event.

Current CDC and state guidelines regarding COVID-19 will be in effect.
