Sugar Season



From our forest at Sunny Meadow Farm to you, our maple syrup makes a delicious addition to your breakfasts and recipes

Behind the scenes

Farmer Jon and his crew are busy collecting the sap

Tapped trees need cool nights and warm days to release their sap

Miles of sap lines end in a large collection tank

The sap is gathered and brought to the sugar house, where it's boiled down

Evaporator in action

Smoke from the wood fire and steam from the evaporator

Constant tending of the firebox keeps the sap boiling

Working round the clock

Night shift

Sugaring goes well into the night, as it takes over 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup
