It's Almost Here...

We're so close now, I can practically taste that first-run syrup! Today was a great mild and sunny day, and for the first time this season there is a small amount of sap trickling into the sugarhouse. However, after such a deep freeze it will take some time before the trees thaw enough to run well. Our sugarhouse will be closed this weekend, as with all of that snow we have some work to do yet, digging up lines and repairing leaks. If the weather forecasters are correct, the next few days should bring some sap, and we hope to have some fresh syrup made and bottled by the end of the week. Please continue to check back for updates, as we hope to be open for business soon!
