The maple sap is running in gushers this year, and Sullivan County’s maple syrup producers are opening their doors the next two weekends for “Sullivan County Maple Weekends.” The Sullivan County Visitors Association site has a list of maple producers that welcome visitors or offer tours. But note most are small family operations, and ask that you call first, since they’ll be up to their elbows in sap.
One of the larger producers, Catskill Mountain Sugarhouse, near Grahamsville, has a drop in policy, and is even offering a sugar walk on Sunday, Mar. 22nd, to see the tapping. Note that the dates on the Sugarhouse website are for 2014 (they’re having a website problem and can’t get in to change the dates for 2015), but I confirmed that they are welcoming visitors this weekend and having the sugar walk. The correct info is on the SCVA site maple page (scroll down for “Maple Adventures”). Or check out their Facebook page.
