YORKTOWN, N.Y. – What is one sure way of testing maple syrup during “Maple Weekend”? Have a pancake breakfast and smother those pancakes in local maple syrup. Hilltop Hanover Farm and White Oak Farm of Yorktown Heights—just a mile apart—have combined their operations and are doing just that.

Hilltop Hanover Farm will be the site for the pancake breakfasts while White Oak Farm opens its sugarhouse to free tours on Saturday, March 18; Sunday; March 19; Saturday, March 25; and Sunday, March 26. Hilltop Hanover Farm and White Oak Farm will be celebrating “Maple Weekends” sponsored by the New York State Maple Producers Association.

Start your day at Hilltop Hanover Farm by enjoying breakfast during one of three pre-arranged times: 9, 10 and 11 a.m. The cost is $8 for adults, $5 for children 5-12, and free for those under 5. You must pre-register for the breakfast at Hilltop Hanover Farm’s website: hilltophanoverfarm.org.

After a hearty breakfast—highlighted by White Oak’s maple syrup—participants will travel only one mile to White Oak Farm. There a free demonstration of how maple syrup is produced will be presented throughout the day. For additional information, call White Oak Farm at 914-245-7535 or visit its website at whiteoakfarm1.com.

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?
