New Hampshire Maple Month 2019 is in full swing, with dozens of sugarhouses across the state opening their doors for tours, demonstrations, samples and sales. While the official Maple Weekend is this Saturday and Sunday only, many operations offer special experiences every weekend of March – some even open up every day.
Here is a roundup of sugarhouses in Concord and the general surrounding area that have events planned for Maple Weekend or Maple Month, according to information they submitted to nhmapleproducers.com, which is a great resource for all things maple in the Granite State.
For organizational purposes, listings will be grouped by town/city, starting with our own.

We have a rustic sugarhouse with adjacent maple orchard. This is our 42nd year of operation at this location and 70th for the old sugarmaker of making maple syrup.
Mapletree Farm has blended the old with the new. Come see us during Maple Weekend and enjoy the surprise. You will not be disappointed. As usual, the evaporator will be operating, steam will be rising, and there will be plenty of free samples, including sugar on snow. Our unique and educational walking tour through the orchard is fun for everyone.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
