Sugaring Season approaching quickly

We are out in the woods right now reparing all the tubing lines and putting in nearly 5,000 taps. Sugaring season is a New England tradition where as spring is approaching the maple sap starts to flow. Lamothe's Sugar House is one of the largest operations in Connecticut.

Bring your family to our farm and sugar house on Saturday or Sundays during February and March to watch maple syrup being made. Robert Lamothe and Ron Bacon will go over the history of how maple syrup was once made and how it is made today. It is a facinating process for the whole family to enjoy and share the experience.

Sample many of the maple products made at our farm, enjoy hot maple coffee and mulled cider from a local farm and shop from our wonderful selection of New England made products. On our farm, we make 7 different varieties of Jams (most popular being Maple Apple Jam and Raspberry Rhubarb Jam), Maple Barbeque sauce, Maple Farmhouse spice rub and we pop Maple Kettle corn fresh each weekend.
