The maple sugaring season in New Hampshire usually lasts about six weeks from mid-February to mid-April, depending on the location. When nighttime temperatures are below freezing and daytime wind chill temperatures rise to 35° F or more, the sap begins to run. It will not run every day if weather conditions are not right. Conditions for good sap runs occur on sunny days with little wind and temperatures in the 40’s after a night of temperatures in the 20’s.
During this time 600 to 1000 maple producers in New Hampshire produce close to 90,000 gallons of syrup valued at over $4 million dollars. The industry produces maple syrup, sugar candies and confections.
Maple syrup is produced when the sap of the maple tree is boiled down to the density of syrup. Nothing is added, and only water is removed. It takes approximately 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to make one gallon of pure maple syrup.
