It's Maple Syrup Season again at Westwood!

Monday, March 20, 2017
Westwood
Outdoors
It's that time of year-cold nights, warmer days.  If the sap starts running, the maple syrup's coming.  Join us as we hang our bucket, collect the sap and turn it into maple syrup. The season usually runs early to mid-February through March. We'll keep our fingers crossed- Old Sugar is showing signs of wear and Mother Nature can be unpredictable.
