Taste & Tours

Each year we invite you to spend the weekend exploring the heart of the Pennsylvania Maple Producer. Each of these sugaring operations are unique in their own way.

There are many members of the Northwest PA Maple Association covering five counties: Crawford, Erie, Warren, Venango, and Mercer.

The following gives a description of each maple producer that participated in the 2017 Tour & Taste Weekend. Feel free to contact any of the producers for information on syrup making and available products throughout the year. Come join us!
