It’s one of the most welcome rites of spring in northern New England – maple sugaring season! And The RocksEstate invites you to join us on the farm for a hands-on lesson in creating maple syrup during our New Hampshire Maple Experience, complete with a horse-drawn wagon ride through the picturesque estate, a visit to our sugar house, delectable cooking demonstrations by stellar chefs, and tasty treats galore!
Need more enticing? Why not make a weekend out of your Maple Experience! The Rocks is teaming up with a dozen local inns and hotels to offer discount packages during sugaring season. Ranging from quintessentially cozy New England inns to family friendly resorts, our list of lodging partners offers a place for every taste.
The New Hampshire Maple Experience will take place March 17, March 24-25, March 31-April 1, and April 7.
During your Maple visit, you’ll learn how to identify sugar maple trees, help tap a tree to collect the sap, see the workings of a modern collecting system up close, and visit our sugar house as fourth-generation sugar maker Brad Presby demonstrates the process of creating our region’s sweet nectar. It’s all capped off by a syrup tasting, complete with the traditional sour pickle and freshly made donut pairing.
We hope to see you this sugaring season at the New Hampshire Maple Experience!
