Sap to Syrup — A Family Tradition of Maple Syruping Presented by Kent Goodermote

Date: Thursday, March 08, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Kent Goodermote from Kent's Sugar House will talk about the process of making maple syrup, from tree sap collection to boiling into the finished table product.

Kent learned the skill of sugarmaking from his grandfather, Al Goodermote.  Kent has been boiling sap at his shack on Plank Road for some 43 years.  In that time his passion for syruping has turned into a seasonal business with his partner, Todd Hewitt.

$5 donation.

Visit Kent’s Sugarhouse, on one of two Maple Weekends at 2529 Plank Road in Berlin.   (March 17th, 18th, and 24th, 25th) There you will see how the old timers used to gather and make syrup and how the production process has changed today to a computerized system.  Samples of syrup and the famous Maple Popcorn will be available for purchase. In addition to syrup, there is maple cream, sugar and candy, as well as many other maple items for sale.
