VT Governor Taps into Maple


Vermont maple sugaring season has officially been tapped.

It’s a Vermont tradition for the governor to kick off the maple season but a first for Sugartree Maple Farm in Williston.

‘”This is what he does every year and there’s one more tree that we have to tap and he chose us to tap,” said Matthew Yandow.

Mackenzie and Matthew, children of the sugar farm owners, Mark and Amy Yandow, shared the experience with classmates from Williston Central School.

Although the season is much different compared to last year, maple experts say  it’s looking up… for now.

“This year… we will see. Usually the season lasts about 40 days. And it’s going to be a little different demographic this year than what we get for a number of days but it’s looking good for the next couple of weeks,” said Henry Marckres the maple specialist for the Agency of Agriculture.

Cheers! To maple sugar and a sweet season. In Williston, Alaina Pinto Local 44 news.
