It’s Berkshires Maple Sugaring Time!

March 4, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Berkshires Maple Sugaring Time!Spring is nearly upon us and that means Berkshires maple sugaring time! New England has hundreds of small maple syrup-producing farms and many are here in the Berkshires.

Berkshires maple sugaring time begins when it starts to be warm enough in the day – 40 degrees or more – for the sap in the maple trees to begin flowing. On a maple farm, these trees will have been tapped, with buckets hanging from them to catch the flow of the maple sap. Once the bucket has collected enough sap, it is collected by a sugarmaker and taken to a sugarhouse, where it will be cooked down into maple syrup.

Depending on the sugar content of the maple sap, it can take up to 86 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup!
