Nature’s Sweetness

If there is one region that truly sees the value in nature’s sweetness, it’s Finger Lakes Farm Country. Surrounded by an abundance of natural resources, local producers are able to create the purest and tastiest treats to share with the community.

It is always a great time of year in the Finger Lakes when the weather becomes a little bit warmer and sap begins to run from the trees. Even if there is snow still on the ground, producers will tap the trees in preparation for Maple Syrup Month, which happens in March every year.

One of the biggest events during Maple Syrup Month includes Maple Weekend, where producers like Theresa Maple Ridge Mountain of Erin invite visitors to their “sugar houses” to experience how their pure maple products are made.

During Maple Syrup Month, Watson Homestead of Painted Post hosts a Maple Sugar Family Weekend. Throughout the weekend, families can collect sap from maple trees, learn about the sugaring process and learn how to make maple syrup.

Two of nature’s greatest flavors, maple and honey, collide at Hungry Bear Farms in Middlesex. What started as a hobby project has evolved into a living for the owners, who also sell supplies to keep the local beekeeping community thriving. The best place to find honey from producers like Beeman’s Apiaries of Owego is often at the region’s many farmers markets. Many producers also use some of nature’s sweetest ingredients to make jams and other preserves as the Finger Lakes region is also home to many berry farms. Knapp Farm in Lowman and Ackerman’s Blueberries in Erinare among some of the most popular u-pick destinations, known for their deliciously sweet berries and products.
