Who can see this weather and not wonder about global warming? Sheesh! Brian has tapped about half the trees due to the warming conditions. The sap ran Saturday and had a sugar content well over 2%. He boiled Sunday and Monday and made a bit of syrup. We’ll hold off tapping more trees for a bit to see how things go. Could have a freeze up on the way soon.
If you are anxious to get out and talk maple drop in on Saturday. We will be open from 12-4pm. And if the weather cooperates we might have sap to boil besides.
Weird weather or not it’s always fun and challenging combined. And we hope to have a chance to visit with our many long-time customers as well as some new ones as we celebrate out 25th season! Brian built the original sugar house in 1990 and we opened to the public for the first time in the spring of 1991. Wow!
