The Season Ends With Tremendous Runs and A New Record! Soon - A Redesigned Website

 Tapping the maple trees on February 16th and ending the season April 25th was the longest and latest year since we started syruping in 1994. The frequent snow storms in April were terrific for sap flow, but tough on anyone not associated with syruping and hoping for 60 degrees and sun. 392 gallons of delicious maple syrup was produced this year, approximately 1.6 quarts of syrup per tap. We beat our old record of 386 gallons, but that output was greater for our 670 taps with 2.28 quarts /tap.

We will bottle syrup as needed in the sizes shown on our website, depending on demand.  If we are low or out of your desired bottle size, it shouldn't take us long to fill your order. Be patient and soon you'll have delicious syrup or maple cream (pure maple syrup in a spreadable consistency).

Our redesigned website will be educational, easy to navigate, have the ability to use credit cards and show beautiful photography. We hope the new site is up and running within a month. 

Enjoy some syrup from this year! 



And the Season Continues

This past week's snowstorm blanketed the sugarbush with a little insurance that the season is going to continue for a while.  Providing us with two benefits, moisture and a slowing spring warm up, the snow brought smiles to our faces.  Yes, I think that maple syrup producers are probably the only people who appreciated a late April snow storm.  The sap flow continues to be pretty good.  We haven't had any really big runs, but we have been able to collect some sap everyday.  Our total production is up to 260 gallons, or 0.26 gallons per tap.  This is at the level that we can consider it a successful season, but still far short of our record in 2011 of 0.56 gallons per tap.  For comparison's sake, last year we made 0.06 gallons per tap--terrible!  Most of the syrup this year has been light amber, due mostly to the cold temperatures.

 We will be boiling today and processing over 2000 gallons of sap.

Syrup For Sale!

The prolonged winter weather has helped the maple syrup season.  It seems like the slow warmup has allowed the surface moisture to finally seep into the ground so that the trees have access to moisture.  We have had strong flows this past week and are anticipating continued good weather (perspective is relative) for sap flow this week.  We have bottled up some of our first batches of syrup and will make maple cream this week.  On Sunday the 14th, we made 35 gallons of light amber syrup that tasted great and has the proper sugar profile to make maple cream.  If you haven't tried the maple cream before, it is a real treat that has the flavor of maple syrup and the consistency of smooth peanut butter.  Despite its name, it is a pure maple product.  Nothing is added exact raw sap.  The only difference between syrup and cream is that the cream is boiled longer and to a higher temperature that causes the sugars to precipitate out of solution.  It really is tasty and worth a try!  It will be listed for sale on the website as soon as it is ready.
