YORKTOWN, NY — February 24, 2021 — White Oak Farm, Yorktown Supervisor Matt Slater, and other Yorktown officials will observe the start of the maple sugaring season by demonstrating the tapping process for the farm’s 2,400 sugar maple trees. Tap lines will begin running this weekend.

For the sap to flow, there must be a day-night temperature fluctuation above and below freezing within each 24 hours. Last year the sap run lasted only 10 days as the weather warmed up quickly. This year, with the recent cold and snow pack, the tapping season may be longer.

White Oak Farm is the southernmost commercial maple syrup producer in New York State and the only one in Westchester County. The public is invited to visit the farm this weekend to see the maple sap boiled.
