Wow what a season. We made just over 100 gallons of maple syrup which is good (average), but where we really had success is in the number of visitors that came to see us during the month of March. Over the course of nights and weekends (and a few vacation days here and there) we had exactly 3,600 visitors out for free tours to learn about the history, math, science and process around making maple syrup. That is a new record, beating the old one by over 1,000 people.
We want to thank everyone for supporting local agriculture and especially our little farm!!
We are in the process of cleaning up now. Lots of washing to do and it will span into May. And we are glad we are presented with a glorious Spring. It is also back to our normal lives (depending on what you call normal), with jobs and kids and other charities that we support. We love maple, but we are always happy to get our lives back.
But just because maple season is over doesn’t mean you can’t still get some goodies. If you need anything (syrup, cream, candy or sugar) you can drop us a line via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we would be happy to coordinate a pickup.
