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.

February 12, 2023

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.

 

February 5th, 2023

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.

   We are gearing up for our Holiday Open House once again.  Can’t believe we’ve been making wreaths as long as we’ve been sugaring but it’s true.  Over 30 years and we are still happy to make so many happy with our unique hand decorated wreaths each year. Our gorgeous, handmade balsam wreaths do go quickly, so be sure to come early for the best selection.

Think about getting your shopping lists in order too and planning a stop to pick up some purely delicious NH Maple Syrup and other goodies for your holiday gift giving.

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.

March 4, 2022

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.

February 27, 2022

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.
