Another mild winter is almost over and the sugar season is underway.  Brian tapped the 6th to 8th and we had our first boil on the 10th, which was the same as last year oddly enough.  After a few days of freeze up it looks like this coming week is going to give us more good weather for sap runs and we’re looking forward to it.

We have fresh syrup packed and ready to go. Grade A Golden Delicate and Amber Rich are available but no Dark Robust syrup yet.  We have restocked  those delicious maple cream cookies, maple caramel popcorn and maple caramels.  And as always we have our staples of maple mustard, maple BBQ sauce, maple pepper and pancake mixes.   Let’s hope our spring weather proves more typical though so we have a good season without any major warm spells. Fingers crossed.

We’d like to thank everyone who came out for Maple Weekend.  It’s always great to get a chance to share the maple experience with so many visitors.  And based on the empty shelves at the end of the day Saturday and Sunday, plenty went home happy with some fresh maple syrup.

But along with that came the end to our season.  The warmer temperatures had some trees shutting down over a week ago and this week many more were done as well.  Overall we had a great season and look forward to getting all our production filtered, packed and recorded for another year.

Next Saturday & Sunday April 1st and 2nd we’ll be open 12-4pm as well as Saturday April 8th.  We will be closed Easter Sunday.  After that look for hours posted to the home page of the website and on Facebook.  We should be open most Saturdays throughout the year.

It’s been an incredible season so far.  We’ve made more syrup in February than ever in our 32+ years.  And the sap has been beautiful even now after a month of running.  The sugar content has been between 2 and 2.5% but is just now showing signs of dropping.  Yesterday I got to go out for a bit with Brian while he collected and I drove the Maple mule.  Crystal clear and bubbles show good sugar content, can’t ask for more!!

March 18th and 19th is Maple Weekend and we’ll be open 10-4pm both days.

Our season is officially underway.  Brian hung buckets from Sunday to Wednesday last week and with the warm temperatures the sap was ready to flow.  Our first boil was Friday the 10th, three days earlier than last year.  We hope we can have as decent a season as last year if the weather cooperates with some cooler breaks to keep the trees from budding early.

On another note, we’ve been getting restocked with Maple Cream Cookies and Maple Caramel Corn is on order.  And we’ll have more of the standards soon too.

Who’d have thought with temperatures at minus 10 or more yesterday that today would be the start of our tapping for this year!  But the trees have been producing sap for a couple weeks so the freeze up was the perfect time to think about getting started.  Weather this week looks like we might see some sap flow once we get the taps in place for this year.  Please remember that your local maple producers need more cool temps to keep the trees from budding too early so we can get a decent season. Fingers crossed.

Next weekend we’ll likely start our weekend hours of having the shop open.  Hours and Boiling times will be posted to the home page, as always, so folks know when to catch us making syrup.
