America   Maine is the largest maple syrup producing county in the U.S.

This year’s syrup season is off to a fairly slow start because March hasn’t produced ideal sap-running temperatures with 40- to 45-degree daytime highs, followed by overnight temperatures in the mid-20s.




Nevertheless, this Sunday, March 24, on Maine Maple Sunday, always held on the fourth Sunday in March, syrup producers across the state will open their sugarhouses to the public, The Free Press Online reports.

Nearly 100 participating sugarhouses will be hosting different activities, such as tours of the sap lines and demonstrations of sap boiling, as well as tastes of all things maple.

Many sugarhouses will be open on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend.

According to the Maine Maple Producers Association, Somerset County in Maine is the largest maple syrup producing county in the U.S. Maine makes more than 575,000 gallons of syrup annually.
