Annual Maple Syrup Demonstration at The Homestead
March 11th, 10a-3p at the Homestead
(Off Reservoir Road, follow the green Deering Association Event signs)
Maple Syrup Demonstration
This annual Deering event is presented by the Deering Association
Come one, come all, and see how small New England towns have been sugaring for decades. You’ll arrive with a smile as you walk into a wall of humid, sweet air. Meet many of Deering’s neighbors enjoying each other’s company, and enjoy various treats.
Fresh coffee, doughnuts and homemade ice cream will be served, and syrup will also be available.
Homestead manager Bob Compton explains sugaring to the crowd during the Deering Association’s 2014 maple sugar demonstration.
The Homestead has been sugaring since 1987. They operate a wood-fired arch and stainless steel raised flue evaporator. The Homestead crew will be on hand to answer any questions you have about sugaring or the evaporator.
