March Happenings around Cambridge, NY March Happenings around Cambridge, NY

We enter into the spring the most delicious way possible with natures own liquid gold - Pure NY Maple Syrup and the Upper Hudson Maple Producers Open House weekends. This self-guided tour is free and open to the public.

While you're traveling through the area you will notice the farmers preparing their fields for crops - reminding us that our Farmers' Markets, U-Picks and roadside stands will be opening soon.

Spring is also a great time to explore our open spaces - try a trail on the quiet side of Lake George; cast a line on the legendary Batten Kill or Mettowee rivers. Our performing arts centers and historic sites are putting together an amazing variety of entertainment options - don't miss Music From Salem or the Footlighters performances in March.

Whether you're a local or a visitor, take the time to step outside and experience beautiful Washington County.

Maple Sugar Weekends - March 21-22 & 27-28 10am - 4pm each day

March madness has an entirely different meaning in Washington County. For the Maple Producers in Washington County the cool nights and warm day's produce "liquid gold" maple sap and from this sap comes pure maple syrup and a variety of other delicious products. Follow the trail from Cambridge, NY and indulge in a pancake feast at Mapleland Farm, Dry Brook Sugar House (both in Salem), Rathbuns in Granville or Pompancuk in Cambridge. You can tour the Sugar Shacks, see the trees being tapped, sample the rich taste of pure New York maple syrup, and enjoy a pancake breakfast, all while touring beautiful Washington County. Consider coming for the weekend and staying in one of the regions Inn's, Hotels or Bed and Breakfasts. A great weekend with the kids!! Or not!

Just north of Cambridge, NY, the Battenkill Valley Creamery is the only fluid milk producer in Washington, Warren and Saratoga County - this means the milk in their bottles comes from their cows.

The Creamery has partnered with the Tour of the Battenkill to produce a specially-designed race-label quart commemorative bottle of chocolate milk. A recent study, published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, shows that chocolate milk may be as good - or better - than sports drinks at helping athletes recover from strenuous exercise.

If you have not yet sampled Battenkill Creamery's chocolate milk, you are in for a treat.
