In the southwest corner of Vermont is a series of valleys nestled between the green mountains to the east and the Taconics to the west. This is Bennington County, an area where sugar maple trees thrive. Each spring the cold nights and the warm days cause the Maple Sap to flow. Families throughout the county gather that sap, boil it down, and produce some of the best maple syrup in Vermont.

>>>>>The Bennington County Sugarmakers Association (BCSA) is a group of maple producers who have joined together to share their ideas and their love for making maple products. Each January the BCSA hosts a Maple School in which sugarmakers gather for a day of learning and sharing ideas. We also host a summer picnic which is a chance to see one another in the “off season”. For more information please go the Maple Meetings section of the website.

>>>>> In March the BCSA hosts an event called Maple Sunday (Weekend). On this weekend participating sugar houses are open to the public. Please go to the Maple Sunday (Weekend) section of the site for more information about this popular event.

And start the weekend off at the Bennington Catamount Rotary club's annual Pancake Breakfast fundraiser. Click here for more information.

Thanks for visiting the site. Hope to see you in the saphouse!
