On March 19, 15 maple producers and their partners from all across West Virginia will open their doors to the public. You’ll have a chance to see how the sweet water is harvested and turned into marketable products. You can sample the goodness, sit down for a maple meal, and purchase your favorite maple merchandise. The WV Maple Syrup Festival in Randolph County is also taking place on March 19.
