FALL MAPLE SYRUP Dormant maple trees pressurize and produce sap during periods of below freezing temperatures at night followed by above freezing temperatures during the day. Maple specialists at the Arnot are currently taking advantage of favorable weather to produce fall maple syrup. Over 1,000 trees were tapped in late November and the first batches of finished syrup have been drawn off at the sugarhouse. With more ideal sugaring weather in the forecast, high syrup production is expected over the next few weeks. Maple products produced in the Arnot Sugarbush are available for purchase at The Cornell Store, Cornell Dairy Bar and Cornell Orchards. For more information on maple syrup production, visit the Cornell Maple Program website or contact your local Cornell Cooperative Extension office.
