I live in Boston, and I'm embarrassed to say that I've never been to Vermont to visit a sugar house! And I love maple syrup! I would love to get the full maple syrup production experience from start to finish.
1) Can someone please recommend a place in Southern Vermont that will demonstrate maple syrup production?
2) I understand that the Maple Open House Weekend is March 26-28 this year. Should I go during that time, or will it be so crowded that I should go before?
Here's the link and they have lots of sugar houses listed - it's a bit overwhelming. Advice would be greatly appreciated!
