YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The New York State Maple Producers Association sponsored “Maple Weekend” for the last two weekends of March. Locally, Hilltop Hanover Farm and White Oak Farm in Yorktown joined together as Hilltop Hanover Farm sponsored a pancake breakfast—using White Oak Farm’s maple syrup—while White Oak Farm provided free tours of its maple making process.

Both weekends sold out. Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino came for breakfast on Saturday, March 19. He praised the efforts of Lucille Munz, the executive director of Hilltop Hanover Farm, and Bri Hart of White Oak Farms, who owns the only commercially owned sugarhouse in Westchester County.
