New York State's Maple Weekends kicked off yesterday.
New York ranks second in the nation for maple production, while it also generates hundreds of millions of dollars each year.
Riverside Maple Farms in Glenville produces several maple products.
Owner Erica Welch tells News Channel 13 visitors get a chance to learn about the sugar-making process and traditions.
"It's about getting people to be aware that this is something that's made right in your backyard."
Maple weekends are part of Governor Cuomo's Grown and Certified Programs.
Maple Weekends continues today and next weekend as well.
