It's Maple Weekend across New York State. This weekend and next weekend, you can take your family to the country to learn about and sample one of New York's most important agricultural products. WBFO's Howard Riedel spoke with Greg Zimpfer, one of the co-founders of Maple Weekend.
WBFO's Howard Reidel speaking with co-founder Greg Zimpfer about Maple Weekend
Scientists say climate change affects everything from weather patterns to animal migrations. And now, a popular breakfast condiment could be at risk as well – maple syrup. That’s bad news for the Great Lakes region, which produces a lot of it.
This week's fresh blanket of snow should provide a nice scenic backdrop for what promises to be a sweet and tasty event in the countryside. Maple Weekend also provides an economic boost for the region.
