CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Sugar houses around New Hampshire are opening their doors to the public over the next few weekends.

The New Hampshire Maple Producers Association’s Maple Sugaring Month starts this weekend and runs through April 2.

More than 50 producers are participating this weekend, and nearly 100 will be part of the 22nd annual Maple Weekend March 25-26. Many will be offering free samples of fresh syrup, maple candies, coffee and doughnuts. Some locations offer tours.

New Hampshire produced 707,000 gallons of syrup last year, up from 601,000 gallons in 2015. Vermont is by far the country’s largest producer, yielding 1.9 million gallons last year.
