Maple syrup festival takes hiatus


Tribune photo by Aaron Piper/ Greg Burton of Medora gets more tools to check the thickness of the syrup in his families evaporator. The Burton Farm held the National Maple Syrup Festival. Because of the movement of weather, farms in southern Indiana are among the first to produce maple syrup each year.

The National Maple Syrup Festival, conducted annually in Medora, has been canceled this year.

Organizers say the event, which revolves around the local harvest and production of maple syrup, will return bigger and better in 2015.

The festival has been conducted the first two weekends in March and attracted thousands of people to Burton’s Maplewood Farm in southwestern Jackson County.
