Mother Nature is reminding us that winter is still hanging on, isn’t she? You may not feel like it’s ice cream weather, but there’s something new happening in Connecticut that might just change your mind. How about made-to-order ice cream?


Speaking of sweet treats, did you know that it’s officially maple season? Also known as sugaring season, this time of year in New England yields the best temperatures for the rising of sap. And according to the Maple Syrup Producers Association of Connecticut, there are over thirty local sugar houses across the state that produce maple products and syrup.

We'll tell you about a few sugar houses and maple festivals where you can see firsthand how maple syrup is made!
