The Quest for Local Maple Syrup



Vermont may have the maple reputation, but here at New Hampshire Magazine, we’ve long maintained that Granite State maple syrup is where it’s really at. Get a closer look at the process — and taste plenty of maple — during the the 23rd annual New Hampshire Maple Weekend held on March 24 and 25. Sugarhouses around the state will open their doors to the public, offering a behind-the-scenes look at how sap becomes the tasty golden stuff we love so much. At the family-owned Heritage Farm Pancake House in Sanbornton (pictured here), start off your day of learning with one of the best breakfasts around. Order up a stack, pour on the syrup that’s made right on site and dig in. As an added bonus, they use farm-fresh eggs, homegrown potatoes for the home fries and Fox County Smoke House bacon.
