Bissell Maple Farm will host a stop on the Maple Madness Driving Tour on March 9 and March 16, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Highlights of the stop include free pancakes, samples of other maple products, horse-drawn wagon tours of the maple farm and musical entertainment. Bissell will also offer a special "Sneak-a-Peek" day previewing their Sugar Chalet maple products from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 2.
Bissell invites families to party in their modern sugarhouse with 100 years of history. Their horse-drawn wagon tours are a fun and unique way to tour the maple farm. With foods, snacks, a warm fireplace, music, and a scenic location, the Bissell tour stop provides a fun day for families.
The Maple Madness Driving Tour is sponsored by the Ohio Maple Producers Association to help promote the state's maple industry. Says event chairman Nathan Bissell about the tour, "We want people to know why Ohio maple producers believe we produce the finest pure maple syrup in the world!"
The entire tour features 43 stops across the state, with Bissell's being the largest and most-visited privately owned sugarhouse in the entire State of Ohio. With about 60 volunteers to help visitors, Bissell works closely with the Ashtabula Visitors Bureau to make their tour stop a highlight of the Northeast Ohio region. The Saturday events also help brighten the end of the winter season in Ohio's snow belt.
