Place Category: NYS Sugarmaker
Maple Weekend Dates: March 17, March 18, March 24, March 25Maple Weekend Activities:
Yancey's Sugarbush is a 6000 tap ( mostly buckets ) operation. It has been in continuous operation since 1844 in the same woods by five generations of the Yancey family. Traditional methods of making syrup are still being used, with horses pulling the sleighs or wagons to collect the sap. Two large wood-fired evaporators boil the sap into syrup that is packaged fresh. Maple cream, Maple sugarcakes, and Maple Granulated Sugar are also available. Family members will be on hand to discuss the maple production techniques we use. A team of horses will be on exhibit either collecting sap (weather permitting) or giving hay rides. People are welcome to come enjoy the boiling shed and woods. Visitors are welcome throughout the spring maple season.
