Some snowflakes in the air this morning but not too cold and as reported the Kettle Boys and Shanty Men are here and hard at work. We may have enough sap to boil later today.
With the continuing cool weather our syrup is still Amber in colour and one yesterday batch was Golden. No Dark syrup until we get warmer weather.This week was our annual inspection by CFIA, the federal agency for maple syrup regulation. We have been approved since we applied 1990 and once again we passed inspection. It is quite extensive covering the facility and all our practices as well as the syrup.
On Sunday, March 30 a pancake breakfast is being served at Union Hall located on Wolf Grove Road about a 1 km east of our farm. A good opportunity to enjoy some country hospitality before or after a walk around the farm.
We are open now until 5:00 pm and will be open tomorrow from 9:00 to 5:00.
