Since the weather is cooperating with just the right mixture of cold and moisture, the Sugar Houses of New Hampshire expect to have a good year. You will get to see and learn all about maple syrup production during their annual Open Houses on March 23 and 24, 2013.
Next door, the state of Maine celebrates Maine Maple Sunday on the 24th. All in all, a sweet weekend to be visiting the Martin Hill Inn since Portsmouth, NH is so close to so many maple syrup producers.
At the Inn, we serve organic 100% pure Grade A maple syrup with our waffles, french toast and pancakes. We think it tastes wonderful, particularly on the blueberry pancakes. But if you can visit these maple houses, I think you will experience the different grades as well as the variety and unique flavors that only come from small production and local purchasing.
Over 110 maple houses will be open for this 18th annual event. Syrup and syrup products will be available for sale and some locations will have breakfasts and petting farms. Visit this site for sugar house locations in New Hampshire. Stay at the Martin Hill Inn and you are a 30-45 minute drive to sugar houses in Nottingham, East Kingston, Brentwood and Candia.
We look forward to your visit and hearing of your sugar house adventures.
