Along with the appearance of the spring peepers, the Elmvale Maple Syrup Festival usually corresponds with the end of another maple season. This year, the festival wound up on a rather blustery Saturday and still lots of faithful customers came out to celebrate maple with us. Thanks to all of those who braved the wintery weather!
There was a nice piece on the A Channel News on Saturday highlighting the Elmvale Festival. You can find it here. If you fast-forward to the eight-minute mark, it runs for about two minutes. If you watch closely, you'll see our own special thirty seconds of fame from about 9:00min - 9:30min. You're a natural, Jesse!
For those who didn't make it to Elmvale on Saturday, and would still like to stock up on the 2011 crop, we will be open from 9:00am - 5:00pm on Good Friday and also on Easter Sunday. Our sugarhouse will be closed on Saturday, when you will find us returning to the Orillia Farmers' Market for their own special Maple Syrup Festival. After Sunday, we will return to keeping our usual irregular hours so please call ahead -- (705) 835-5780.
