2019 Syrup Season is all wrapped-up!!

Our garage went from a bottling station to a bucket-washing station overnight. We finished with a decent harvest this year, up from the previous two seasons with over half of our syrup flowing after the April snowstorm!! It saved our season! Please check-out our Summer Farmers Market schedules. Look forward to seeing you there!

4-Wheeler in distress. Dozer to the rescue....

The trees ran during the storm....

The trees ran during the storm, but not 'crazy' as we had anticipated, but enough for us to collect today and cook tonight (Friday). Also enough to extend our season by another week or so.

Winter Storm Warning in your area....

After the sap we collected yesterday was not crystal-clear, we might think our season is wrapping-up. But today's storm warning is a perfect way to bump an 'okay' season to a 'super' season. The trees tend to run wild with the low pressure that accompanies a storm front. So not everybody grumbles about SNOW in APRIL.

Friday night at the Shak

We’ll have the stove going tonight at the Shak, but looking at the temps for the weekend looks like tonight will be it until temps cool-off again next week. The season’s NOT over.
