March and April is maple syrup season in Hastings County. It is a wonderful time to get out and experience the renewal of early spring when the days are getting longer, the light is getting stronger and the sap is rising in the maple trees.
The Spring season is soon approaching and with it comes the delicious maple syrup season and the joys of being outdoors. Harvest Hastings, in partnership with Hastings County, wants to let people know about the opportunities here in our own backyard through out March and early April
Harvest Hastings asks, as the weather begins to warm, why not celebrate the season by visiting your local maple syrup producers and embark on a sugar bush tour and horse-drawn sleigh ride or enjoy a pancake breakfast hosted by a local organization and take a walk on one of the many trails throughout Hastings County?
Throughout March and April, a collection of Harvest Hastings members who are involved in maple syrup production will be highlighted, along with the many additional activities and events that compliment the season.
