Have a sweet time come March in Thurman! For three consecutive weekends the area celebrates all things maple and you won't want to miss out on samples, tours, and more.
2020 Five maple farms participate in Thurman Maple Days:
- Adirondack Gold Maple Farm, 74 Bear Pond Road, Athol, NY, 12810

There are additional farms participating as well, with sheep/goat cheese tastings and more. Watch sap being gathered and boiled and see how a certified tree farm makes maximum use of the wood from all types of trees. Learn what's involved in this industry, have some old fashioned family fun, and take home some of the best maple syrup in the country. Making maple syrup is a unique and time-intensive process, but the end result is well worth waiting for!
Come hungry! There will be syrup samplings, pancake breakfasts and more. After you've had your fill of maple sugar you can get a llama kiss, enjoy games and activities for kids, shop for delectable goodies, dance to live music, and more.
