During the summer months, we enjoy the chance to take part in regional and state maple meetings. The NH Maple Producers Association Summer Meeting is a good chance to get together with other producers from around the state and hear updates on the maple industry. Typically the members also discuss the upcoming fair season and how to staff the sugarhouses at Deerfield Fair, Hopkinton Fair, and the Eastern States Expo in Springfield Mass. Larry and Jeff are always interested to work at the fairs to meet people and answer questions about maple syrup. They have been participating in these events for several years now. In Northern Vermont, there is a Maplerama event for producers. Even though it's off-season, the sugarmakers from all over the Northeast, enjoy the chance to tour other sugarhouses, visit with maple syrup equipment vendors, and learn from each other.
