February 18th may sound early for some to start thinking about Maple Syrup, but this recent springlike weather certainly has us on high alert! It does seem a little early to expect a sap run just yet, but Mother Nature knows best, so we're heeding her warning and getting ready just in case. We were out in the sugarbush stretching lines on Friday, and with sunshine, blue sky, and lots of puddles, it certainly did feel like spring was right around the corner! This afternoon we hammered in the first taps of the 2011 season.
As we get busy now working in the woods, the farm will be closed for sales. Last year's crop of syrup is in fact sold out, so we hope you will all join us in looking forward to a fresh batch!
Please continue to check back here for updates as the season unfolds. We will let you know when the farm will be open for sales and visitors as soon as possible. Thanks for checking in, and fingers crossed for a long and sappy spring!
