Governor Phil Scott and Ag Secretary Anson Tebbetts will ceremonially kick-off Vermont’s 2017 Maple Season on February 28th in Randolph Center. Silloway Maple will host a fun-filled day to celebrate the importance of the maple industry to Vermont’s communities, economy, and heritage.
The Silloway family invites members of the community to come out from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to sample maple treats and tour their sugaring operation. Governor Scott will arrive at 11:30 to tap a tree and offer remarks about the importance of this signature product for Vermont.
The Orange County Sugarmakers will be offering a delicious, maple-inspired lunch for guests to enjoy, and the Siloways will be serving sugar on snow. Aspiring epicures are invited to test their talents in the maple specialty food competition, which will be judged by students from the New England Culinary Institute.
