Maine Maple Sunday is held every year on the fourth Sunday in March.

This event is when Maine maple producers open their doors to the public to demonstrate maple syrup making. Bob's Sugarhouse always participates, giving free samples of maple syrup on ice cream, mini pancakes and muffins, maple candy and balloons for kids, door prizes and much more. Please join us for a first hand experience. Watch as the maple aroma of boiling sap fills the air and is transformed into Bob's sweet Pure Maine Maple Syrup.

Bob's Sugarhouse is a family-run sugaring business representing 63 years of experience, 26 of them in the present location. Bob makes fine Maine maple syrup, creamy maple butter, maple sugar candy, maple jelly, maple lollipops, maple taffy ("Sugar On Snow"), and more. Sample the succulent flavor of spring's sweet amber liquid in Bob's products or try some of his other suggestions, maple glaze, maple cream, ice cream topping -- or think of your own.


  • It takes 40 gallons of sugar maple sap to make one gallon of pure Maine Maple Syrup.

  • It takes freezing cold nights and warm sunny days with temperatures in the 40's and up before the sap will run.

  • It takes approximately 40 years for a sugar maple to reach tapping size. The sugar maples need to be tapped, the lines run, the buckets hung, the sap gathered daily, the wood cut, the fires watched, the sap boiled to syrup, and the syrup packaged and labeled before it reaches your table.

  • Bob's pure Maine Maple Syrup is 100% fat free.

Don't forget to stop by the Sunday morning Benefit Breakfast at the Dover-Foxcroft Fire Station!
