Update: Wednesday, February 27, 2013
We are expecting (and hoping!) that our first boil will be this Saturday, March 2. Of course, we are dependent on Mother Nature, so only time will tell. We need daytime temperatures in the 40’s and overnights below freezing for the sap to flow. Now that we have all our lines run and trees tapped, we can only wait for the weather to cooperate. Please check back here for the latest.
If all goes as planned, we will host tours on the following schedule:
Saturday, March 2 9am – 4pm
Sunday, March 3 9am – 4pm
You can drop in any time – we will run tours back-to-back during the above hours.
To Join Us For A Boil
We are more than happy to share our passion with you. We can talk with you about everything from identifying trees to tubing, tapping and the history of maple sugaring. You will be able to see our evaporator running and sample sap multiple times as it goes through the finishing process to eventually become syrup. We will tell you about filtering, bottling and grading and will tell you about the process of making maple candy. For a more detailed tour description, see the “Tours” page on our website
We’re located at 25 Turtle Lane in North Andover – second house on the right. When we boil we put a sign out at the intersection of Salem Street and Turtle Lane. We welcome visitors, so feel free to stop by if you’d like to see our operation. When you arrive, just park on the street and walk up the driveway and around the house to the back yard where you’ll see the sugar house. Please be mindful to park so you do not block our neighbors driveways and mailboxes. C’mon in and check it out!
