Thank You, Merci, Danke, Gracias to all the folks who came out to the sugarhouse on Maple Weekend.  It was just terrific having the chance to share our love for sugaring with so many people again.  Lots of familiar faces and more than a few new ones enjoyed the days listening to Brian explaining the ins and outs of the sugaring process, enjoying the sweet maple smell coming off the evaporator and then visiting the store for some fresh maple syrup and yummy maple treats to take home.  You all make this a pleasure for us year after year.

Our love and thanks to our family too –  Megan, Tyler, Simon and Molly for helping out and making things go so smoothly.

Best wishes to All!

Open Maple Weekend 10am to 4pm

Both days we’ll have ongoing tours in the sugarhouse to explain the complete sugaring process.  Check out the Maple Trivia Leafs on the wall to test your maple knowledge.  We have a short trail to follow too if you want to take a stroll and see the buckets on the trees nearby.

There will be lots of 2022 maple syrup on hand to purchase as well as all the other great products we have to offer.  Check out our Products page to see a full list with prices.

Please do not : park on the hill beyond our driveway or the opposite side of the street from us so that local traffic can travel safely on Candia Rd.  Street parking on Sheepwash Drive, a brief walk from us, is another option.

Our apologies, but due to Covid 19 we are not doing samples this year.

This week was cold and not good for sap flow but we were busy making some of our other maple confections.  The kitchen smelled wonderful this week while we made fresh batches of maple cream and maple taffy too.  We’ve had folks looking for those maple cream cones for weeks and it’s been a challenge to get the cones.  Like everything else that has supply chain issues, the cones were backordered in Canada.  But we found some sugar cones to replace the cake cones and we’ll have them for sale this weekend.  Along with these, we packaged up more of our Grade A Amber maple syrup from last week so we have plenty on hand.

So far the season has been interesting to say the least.  But we’ve still managed to make a fair amount of syrup despite the short warm spells over the last couple weeks.  Looks like another cold week until next Saturday so we are hoping for some good sap flows then.  In the meantime we will be working on getting some of our other maple goodies made this week.

Can we get weather any weirder than this?  One day 60 degrees and less than 24hrs later down to freezing.  While the warm did get some sap flowing, we really would like to see more moderate temps in the low 40s and nights well below freezing.  But we’ll see.  Brian collected today and boiled until 7:30.  More sap still needs to be collected tomorrow so hopefully we will be able to boil again sometime this weekend.

Yesterday we picked up an order of the Maple Caramel Popcorn that was such a favorite for a long time.  This is from the original Hutchinson’s recipe so it’s just as good as always but now being made by Van Otis Chocolates.  And we have a couple new items we are trying from them to see what folks think.  Some individual Maple Caramels and boxed Maple Cream Truffles.  And we are stocked with Apple Hill Farm Pancake mixes and jams in 6 flavors too.

And we have the pleasure of having more pieces back in stock from Mike Gibbons of Nutfield Pottery.  Mike’s a very talented potter and a member of the League of NH Craftsman.  Check out his unique, practical and beautiful pieces.

 The 2022 Maple Season is Here!

IMG_4035 2We are so excited to have the new season here and opening up for visitors once again.

It’s a new year and new things to look forward to.  Brian has a new best friend (the Maple Mule) helping him get tapped and for collecting sap.  Looks to be a great addition to the family.  Tapping is underway and we might get a run before the freeze up this weekend.  So check in and see how things are going on the website or on Facebook.

We’re are going to have that wonderful Maple Caramel Popcorn back in stock this year along with a few other additions.  And since our gift baskets have proven so popular at Christmas, we are going to have some of those made up for folks to take home or give as gifts during Sugar Season.

Think sappy thoughts!

Holiday Open House 2020

Dear Customers and Friends,

Please join us again this year for our Annual Holiday Open House.  Of course this year will be a bit different than in the past so we can all keep safe during the Covid pandemic. Social distancing, hand sanitizer and masks will be necessary.

The biggest change this year will be centered around our Wreath sales.  They will only be able to be purchased through our online store as of Dec 1st and then picked up at the sugarhouse later.  Visit the Online store at folsomsugarhousestore.com to view the wreaths online and make your purchase.

The next change is an expansion of hours so that people have more time to come to purchase products and spread the crowds out.  So we will be opening on Dec 1st through Dec 6th from 10am to 4pm.  And then every Saturday and Sunday until  Christmas. Don’t forget that we still have Maple to Go every day as an option too for those of you wanting a contact free shopping choice.  All products and prices can be found on the Products page on our website: folsomsugarhouse.com  Just give us a call at 603-887-3672 to place your order and pay over the phone with a credit card!  Order pick ups can be done 10am to 4pm daily.

We’ll have our usual Pure Maple Syrup and products for sale along with the specialty items.  And gift giving can’t be any easier than picking up one of our Maple Gift Baskets for under the tree or for Yankee Swaps, Hostess Gifts, Coworkers and more.  How can you go wrong?
