After another long and cold winter, it’s finally warming up. And we’ve been hard at work at our new mud season tradition: making maple syrup. Last year, our neighbors’ started a bit of a community sugar bush, and it was a learning experience. This year, we know a little bit more about what to expect and our expanding.
We tapped 32 trees on our property about a week ago, right before the first warm up. Then, this past weekend we expanded about 125 trees on two other properties.
