Fifth graders recently tapped the maple trees at Radez Elementary with Mr. Putnam of Maple Hill Farms. Mr. Putnam has long teamed with 5th grade classes and the Radez Library to enter the New York State Agriculture in the Classroom Maple Production contest.
The students will enter the syrup in to the contest to compete against other schools in New York State for the best maple syrup.
Maple weekend is March 17-18 and March 24-25. There are many great open houses, tours, pancake breakfasts and other opportunities. Click here for more information.
