MAPLE SEASON IS UPON US!

Posted 2/21/2017 9:59am by Farmers.

It's that exciting time of year again when the days are getting longer by three minutes, the sun is waking us sooner and we know the sap is going to run! We never feel quite prepared for the Maple season to begin but every year it comes upon us with relentless unpredictability, thanks to the quirky behavior of Mother Nature. This year we've been doing work on a sugarbush expansion, so our stress is greater than normal. As of today, we're all tapped in and ready to chase vacuum leaks up the mountain as they relentlessly appear. Our first boil was on February 20th but with our sugarbush facing North, we can be a couple days behind some other sugar makers. Mass Maple Weekend is the 18th and 19th of March and we'll be giving demonstrations in the sugarhouse both days from 10-4, we'll have horse drawn wagon/sleigh rides going on (check back for times) and some food sampling as well. Bring the family, visit the animals and see how Maple Syrup is made. 

Hope to see you soon!
