Maple Weekend Celebration in Western New York

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – The Western New York State Maple Producers Association presents the 11th Annual Maple Weekend on March 18-19 from 10am-4pm each day.

About 40 maple producers across Western New York will be hosting open houses for the public to see maple production. All participants will be boiling sap into maple syrup and many will demonstrate maple sugar making. The event is free to the public.

WBFO's Mark Scott talked with one of the event's founders, Greg Zimpfer. Click the "listen" icon above to hear their conversation now or use your podcasting software to download it to your computer or iPod.
