The season has been pretty consistent since it began on March 28th; we have collected small runs of sap every day since then, and our stock of maple syrup is slowly growing. With the late start to an already short window of opportunity, we are hoping that the season will hang on just a little longer. The forecast does look like it has some cool overnight temperatures for this coming week, so hopefully we are not finished yet. With it now being mid-April, significantly warmer temperatures and the end of our frosty nights are surely close at hand.
In addition to collecting and boiling sap every day, we have been hard at work bottling up all of the fresh syrup. The Elmvale Maple Syrup Festival is on Saturday, April 26th this year, and we always anticipate a big crowd! We continue to be open at the farm from 1pm - 5pm daily, and will be open through the entire Easter weekend. Come by and stock up on spring sweetness!
