Spring has officially arrived but we are still experiencing a period of wet weather and mild conditions. Not the best for maple sap but with vacuum on our tubing system we have been able to stimulate some sap flow and will be boiling today. Cold weather returns tonight which should reset the trees and provide another sap run on Monday and Tuesday.
The snow is slowly melting, and about 6 inches still remains in the sugar bush and shady areas. Rubber boots are still needed for a walk in the woods. The Shanty Men and Kettle Boys will be operating today and there will be taffy on the snow for a taste of maple syrup. Maple syrup and other maple products are available for sale as well.
