NH Maple Experience at The Rocks

March 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

As spring returns to the North Country this year, so does the New Hampshire Maple Experience at The Rocks Estate. Scheduled to run March 11, 18-19, 25-26 and April 1, the Maple Experience offers visitors a chance to learn about and participate in each step of maple sugaring, a treasured rite of spring in the area.

Maple Experience visitors will enjoy a horse-drawn wagon ride through the historic Rocks Estate as part of the program. An interpretive guide is on board each wagon, sharing some of the local history and information about sugaring. Maple Experience tours include a visit to the sugar house, tucked into one of the many renovated historic buildings at The Rocks. Here, visitors will watch fourth-generation sugar maker Brad Presby at work. Guests are invited to purchase a New Hampshire Maple Experience commemorative mason jar to fill at the farm with warm syrup to bring home.

Adjacent to the sugar house is the interactive maple museum and education center, featuring maple sugaring artifacts from the extensive collection of legendary Sugar Hill sugar maker Charlie Stewart. Visitors will also enjoy a maple syrup tasting – paired with the traditional fresh donut and sour pickle.

Maple cooking demonstrations by chefs from the Sugar Hill Inn, Chef Joe’s Catering Service, Adair Country Inn and Indian Head Resort will be staged each day of the Maple Experience at noon. Onlookers will be invited to sample the finished product, and each recipe will be printed and available for visitors to take home.
