Maple Syrup Making – Rescheduled to October 25

Published on September 7, 2023 by Eileen Samberg

Have maple trees? An experienced maple syrup maker will explain how you can make your own.

The talk is courtesy of the Southborough Open Land Foundation in partnership with the Southborough Library. But it will be held in Cordaville Hall (aka the Senior Center).

The presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, October 25 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. No registration required.

Obviously, to actually take advantage of the tips, you’d have to have a maple tree on your property (or permission from someone who does). But even those who don’t are welcome to come learn more about what goes into making syrup.

Tony Willoughby’s talk will cover:

  • How to identify different maple trees
  • When and how to tap
  • Boiling techniques
  • Filtering & bottling

Willoughby has 15 years experience as an amateur maple syrup maker.
