March 15, 2013

At this same time last year we had been eating on our deck for 3 nights because it was so warm.  It was like summer really and the season came to an abrupt halt pretty much throughout the state on about March 15, 2012.  This year everyone we have spoken to is having a pretty good year so far.  More light amber made than ever by many.  We just made our first dark amber syrup this year from the run on Wednesday.  It got really cold last night and the trees took until about 4 o’clock to warm up enough to run.  But that late in the day, they won’t put out much before they are chilled back down.  We’ll see what happens this coming week.  Sounds like some cooler weather.

Hours this weekend will be  12- 5 pm Saturday and Sunday

Don’t forget Maple Weekend March 23rd and 24th.  We’ve already ordered our ice cream for those ever popular maple sundaes!

More info and hours will be posted this coming week.
