On Saturday, March 3, at noon on Burton’s Maplewood Farm, the ceremonial sugar maple was tapped to christen the fourth annual National Maple Syrup Festival. Joe Kelsay, director of the Indiana Department of Agriculture did the honors to open the 2012 maple sugaring season.
Held the first two weekends in March at Burton’s Maplewood Farm and Medora Community School, at the festival visitors learn about the modern-day maple sugaring process, as well as the history of maple sugaring from Native American and French historic encampments.
