News & Events 2021


Our 3,300 taps are in and we're eagerly anticipating another maple season. As we head into the second week of March the forecast shows some ideal weather conditions for our first sap flow.

It was exactly 100 years ago that Lazare and Amanda Bisson opened their newly built sugar house on the southern mid slopes of Cates Hill. Little did they know at the time that they were laying the foundation for a three generation one hundred year tradition. The equipment may have changed over the years but the end product remains the same, pure maple syrup. We will also have available our maple butter, maple candy and our ever popular maple taffy ("tire").

The sugar house will be opening for the season on Friday March 19. Our hours will be 1:00 to 5:00 weekdays and 9:00 to 5:00 weekends. Due to Covid 19, we will be closed to the public and we will be providing curbside service again this year. Our sugar house is small and does not offer the space necessary to keep everyone safe.

In celebration of our 100th anniversary, we will be doing weekly raffles and all of the names will be added to a grand prize drawing at the end of maple season. Those who call us for mail order products will also be eligible for a monthly drawing at the end of each month in which the order is taken. We will also have for sale our newly published book, The Sugar House on the Hill, 100 Years of Tradition and Change at Bisson's Sugar House and a commemorative 100th anniversary bottle. The price of each is $15.00 and they make great gifts, separately or as a pair.

We are looking forward to serving you.

Lucien and Muriel
