I am going to point you to the site that has been my “Go To” site for close to 20 years now. http://www.ctmaple.org
I and the park are members of The Maple Syrup Producers Association of Connecticut or MSPAC. On this site you can learn about making Maple Syrup, you can ask questions, you can find sugarhouses open to the public near you or your friends who don’t live near Brooksvale. You can also view a really cool video about the industry in CT and meet some of the people who are literally the “salt of the earth” type folk. Enjoy!
