It’s maple sugaring season in Cornwall, and local farmers along with hobbyist producers are safely welcoming in the season to mark a quintessentially New England sign that spring is on the way. This tradition adorned with taps, buckets, boling, and whole lot of running around, has a rich historical heritage in town. Cornwall has some of the most impressive stands of sugar maple in the state, and plenty of wit from local sap veterans about getting started. Especially things not to do; like when a local well-meaning resident accidentally tapped a telephone pole in their quest for maple perfection. As to what makes the sap flow some will point east but perception reigns supreme.
