Jed’s Maple gearing up for open house weekend March 23 & 24

in Derby/News

DERBY — Jed’s Maple Products of Derby will be hosting their 20th Annual Sugar on Snow Party and Maple Open House on March 23 and 24 this year.

The event will be held in conjunction with the Vermont statewide Maple Open House.

The Wheeler family says they are excited to once again open their doors to friends, family and the community to celebrate maple sugaring time in Vermont.

Doors will open at 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. both days.

This free family event includes sugar on snow, wood-fired maple pizza, maple specialty food sampling, tours of the eco-friendly sugarhouse and the maple museum.

There will also be storytime with sugarmaker Steve, and lots of other activities.

Most activities take place outside, so please dress accordingly for the weather.

Jed’s Maple Products is a certified organic sugarmaker.

They use high-pressure steam in their evaporator rather than wood or oil.

The maple museum is housed in the sugarhouse that Steve grew up sugaring in and allows visitors to take a step back in time to explore the local area’s maple history.

Jed’s Maple is also a proud participant in Audubon’s Bird Friendly Maple Program.

They will be sharing information throughout the weekend about how they help the migratory songbirds that nest in their woods during the spring and summer months.

‘Auddie’, the Jed’s Maple Bird Ambassador, will be making appearances both days!

Jed’s Maple Products is located at 259 Derby Pond Rd. in Derby.
