The maple season is fast approaching. This is family weekend Feb 17 to Feb 19 and the Kettle Boys will be setting up at Winterlude at Confederation Park. They will have their usual assortment of toys and a warm fire under their boiling kettle.
A good place to visit for pancakes and fresh maple syrup is Temple’s Sugar Bush at Ferguson Falls. They are opening for the season on March 1.
The Lanark and District Maple Syrup Producers Association Tapping Out ceremony is being held this year on March 3 at the Horton Homestead Farm near Lansdowne. This will be an official tree tapping to signify the beginning of the season, fun and games and food.
Tapping will begin at our farm next week and we should be ready for that first run of sap by Feb 28.
