Last Sap Of The Year

Sunday April 20th was our final sap day of 2014.  It was -4 overnight on Sunday, and this afternoon it  got up to +24! The grass is turning green, the spring peepers are singing, and the syrup season that took so long to get here is finally over.

                                                                        final boil

With the extremely late start to the sap run, we were fearing for the worst.  However, once the flow began, we did get three solid weeks of good sap weather and came out in the end with about an average crop - not bad considering.

We will no longer be keeping regular hours at the farm, so please call ahead to arrange a visit ~ (705) 835-5780.  You will find us this weekend at the annual Elmvale Maple Syrup Festival.  Fingers crossed for a beautiful day!
