Maine Maple Weekend- March 19-20 and March 26, 2016
We started hosting Maine Maple Sunday in the late 1980ʼs with a few people at the sugarhouse. Each year we added a few more exciting activities and more people would come. Maple Sunday has grown by leaps and bounds over the past decade to the point where it is literally the largest event held in our town for the year. Ironically, Newﬁeld, Maine has a population of about 1400, yet Maine Maple Weekend saw about 5,200 people on this weekend in 2015. This is nearly four times the population of our small town.
Please join us on Maine Maple Weekend this coming March 19-20 and the 26th for threedays of fun ﬁlled FREE events. On both Saturday we will be open from 8AM- 4PM and on Sunday from 8AM- 4PM. We will be closed on Easter Sunday to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior. We offer exciting activities such as scavenger hunts, calf naming contests, pig weight contests, sap lugging contests, and door prizes. Our Maple Store is fully stocked for the event with many special prices. We will also have free samples of Maple Syrup on pancakes and ice cream, fudge sampling, and maple whoopie pie tasting events. Our maple store is also open throughout the year. We welcome you to visit at your convenience. We accommodate: bus tours, restrooms available, handicapped accessible, retail sales offered, wholesale sales offered.

Snowflake Trail and December Open house
Each Fall, we hold two more open house events. One is a few weeks before Thanksgiving, called the Snowﬂake Trail. A group of local small businesses join in with us and have an open house weekend. The second open house is held in the beginning of December. The obvious intent of these days is to give people a chance to purchase Maple Syrup and Maple Products for Thanksgiving and Christmas. While these two events are somewhat smaller than Maine Maple Sunday and their focus is very different, they still attract a large number of people with a passion for our great products. Pure Maine Maple products are fast become the Christmas present of choice for the most discriminate givers.
The Snowflake Trail will be held on November 6-8, 2015. We are looking forward to the thousands of people that will attend the event, this year and know that once again, the Holidays will be sweeter because of it. Have you been on the Snowflake Trail before? If you are a seasoned veteran, or this is your first year, I would personally encourage you to visit us on one of these three days, from 10AM-5PM. We will have Snowflake Trail maps and information about the 12 local businesses that are participating this year. As always, we will have lots of yummy samples to enjoy too!
