Contrasts in the northcentral Pennsylvania weather have never been more apparent than during the past couple of weeks. Early maple tree tappers found their buckets coated with as much fluffy white snow as they could handle on Monday. More than a dozen area maple syrup producers will be opening their doors to the public March 26-27 during the Potter-Tioga Maple Producers Association’s seventh annual Maple Weekend Tours. Goal is to promote the potential of maple syruping in the region and increase public awareness of the industry. Visitors to the farms will be able to witness tree-tapping and production of maple syrup, maple sugar and other products. Operators will describe the production process and answer questions. Hours are 10 am and 4 pm each day. Potter County operations on the tour include, Brydonson Farm, 592 N. Ayers Hill Road, Coudersport; Sons of Dunn Family Farm, 1606 North Ayers Hill Road, Coudersport; Rathbun Farms, Pinneo Hill Road, Shinglehouse; Charles Nelson and Sons, 214 Grover Hollow Road, Genesee; Hamilton’s Maple Products, 19 Bunnell Road, Ulysses; Sticky Bucket Maple, 145 Parker Hill Road, Sabinsville.
