Vermont Maplerama 2019 is put on by The Chittenden County Maple Producers Association, July 18th, 19th and 20th.
Maplerama is a maple showcase held by a different county each year to include sugar house tours, a maple contest, awards banquet, vendor exhibits, workshops and more. This year it is being held at the Whitcomb Barn in Essex, VT on July 18, 19, and 20. Friday and Saturday tours have a diversity of maple producers. You will get a chance to visit sugarhouses that collectively make syrup for over two hundred thousand taps, and boil with wood, wood chips, pellets, oil and natural gas. Some use the latest in technology like high brix R/O’s and evaporators and others are low tech and everything in between.
