Thurman, NY – Bring the whole family to Town of Thurman, NY to visit all five great maple producers for this year’s Maple Days event, scheduled for the next three weekends, March 11-12, 18-19 & 25-26. Guests will have the opportunity to watch maple syrup being made before their eyes. Participating maple farms – Hidden Hollow Maple Farm, Valley Road Maple Farm, Toad Hill Maple Farm, Candy Mountain Maple and Mud St. Maple – all are in the same business, but differ in many respects, so plan to visit them all.
Guests will see syrup, maple sugar, maple peanuts, and candies being made, as well as maple tea and coffee and souvenir clothing items. Wonderful maple treats will tempt everyone’s palate, and special activities will fill these days with fun. Sugarhouses will open their doors for touring and tasting, sampling, and shopping from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. these days. But wait, there is more: While you are in Thurman, Martin’s Lumber and Nettle Meadow merit visits as well. Martin’s Lumber hosts an Artisan Market where friends join them in offering indoor activities, demonstrations, and sales.
Just down the road, find Nettle Meadow Farm, with tastings of goat and sheep cheeses and, weather permitting, farm tours each hour. And on all three Saturdays at the Thurman Town Hall (Saturdays only, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) the Postal Service will be offering a pictorial postmark to commemorate Thurman Maple Days, each Saturday you will receive the stamp with that day’s date. Also, on Saturdays only, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., local crafters will be set up for the 1st annual Maple Days Vendor Fair at the Town Hall.
Note: Guests are encouraged to dress in layers with hats, gloves, and boots to be prepared for erratic Adirondack weather.
Please be advised: Thurman Maple Days organizers love animals, which is why they request that you not bring pets to Thurman Maple Days, for their safety and the safety of other guests and the farm animals.
