If you've never been to Vermont, this is THE time to go.

The maple sap starts running as soon as the days are warm and the nights are still below freezing.  It's a wondrous experience as you smell the wood smoke spilling from the sugar houses. 

There's a short tour of the sugarbush, a stand of maples where the farm collects its sap.  The sap is collected in buckets. The sap is brought back to the sugarhouse where it is boiled down in large wood-fired evaporator.

The real treat comes when you can pour some of the fresh maple syrup onto snow and eat the hardened confection.
