Behind the scenes: Maple sugaring at Goulds Sugar Shack

Franklin County

SHELBURNE FALLS, Mass. (WWLP) – A cold Monday night and a mild Tuesday made for a perfect day of maple sugaring at Goulds Sugar Shack in Shelburne Falls. 

The crew at Goulds has been making maple syrup for 60 seasons.  Bill Wall has been a part of the tedious process for 35 years.

“I like coming in and helping out the family, and meeting the people, I just enjoy doing it,” Wall said. “If you see the smoke coming out of the smoke stacks, stop in!”

Governor Charlie Baker declared March as Massachusetts Maple Month. There are approximately 300 maple syrup producers across the state.
