December - The new sapping season starts in late winter; typically from mid-March to mid-April in most maple-syrup producing areas, when temperatures are below freezing at night and above freezing during the day. Tours usually begin in early Spring! That's a great time to visit a maple sugar orchard or sugarworks and see a sugaring demonstration; watch them make maple syrup!
Where are Maple Syrup farms/orchards/sugarworks, etc.? Well, they're not in Hawaii or Florida, for sure. They are concentrated in the northeast and upper midwest in the US and the eastern half of Canada, even though maple trees do grow in the northwest. That's why the areas below (in states outside of the Northeast and Midwest) have no listings! Although, there is research to develop trees that can produce sap/syrup in warmed climates.

Missouri produces only a truly negligible amount of Maple syrup. A 2017 survey of Missouri farmers by the US Department of Agriculture estimated a total of 333 gallons of maple syrup; other estimates say maybe 1000-1200 gallons for the entire state. SO, at present, there are NO commercial maple syrup farm, orchards or sugarworks to visit in Missouri. These are only private folks producing a little for family and friends.
