Wow – what a fantastic weekend on the farm! We had 770 visitors over the weekend – a great turnout! Sold out of cream again, and this time we made a double batch. So this week we will make a TRIPLE batch to ensure we have enough to last through Sunday. We’ll also be making more maple candy for all our sugar-freaks out there. We will be boiling this upcoming weekend, March 29-30, and it will likely be our last weekend so if you’re looking to come now is the time!
Tours last about an hour and run back-to-back all day Saturday and Sunday from 9am – 4pm. There are no set start times as it all depends on how many people are there but no matter what time you come you are guaranteed to find a tour in progress so just come on in and join the fun! It’s still a bit muddy on the way out back to the sugar house as we still have snow melting…and more will be coming before the weekend. Really – this is spring?!?! Hope to see you this weekend!
A friendly reminder that we are inviting you to our sugar house, but not into our home. You are welcome to come out back and explore all you want around the sugar house. However, please respect the fact that this is also our home, and we are not inviting you to come up onto our front porch or onto our back deck. Please do not walk through the back yard onto our patio or off the path into our pool area or on our front lawn over to our pond. Last weekend for the first time we had quite a few people in places they didn’t belong, and there was some damage done to our personal property, which was really quite disappointing. So please keep track of your children and please respect our personal property. The path to the sugar house runs along the right side of the house (as you look at the house), and when you leave you should follow the same path back out front. If anyone needs to use the bathroom there is a port-a-potty out front next to the driveway for your convenience. We have several recycle bins and a trash barrel in the sugar house for you to dispose of anything you need, so please don’t leave trash on the ground or in our driveway or in the street. We truly enjoy having visitors and want to continue inviting the community so let’s all work together to keep this possible.
