We are still processing sap that ran over the last two days. The sap ran as hard as we can recall for during this period including all night onTuesday – Wednesday night. We did have a period last year when it ran for three days so it’s not quite a record for us but close. With more spring weather ahead it is shaping up to be a good to very good year for maple syrup in this area.
This is Maple Weekend when many sugar camps will be open for visitors. We will be open as usual welcoming visitors to our camp and to the Kettle Boys and Shanty Men. In the picture Eric Boysen, our key Shanty Man, is treating visitors to a taste of the syrup made on the small wood fired evaporator. This is a good place to see how an evaporator works and to smell the steam from the boiling sap and of course taste the syrup.
We will be open as usual on Maple Weekend from 10:00 to 5:00.
