Collecting Sap

Joe and I are just back from collecting sap. It’s cold outside, but will be warm tomorrow when the evaporator is going! Join us at the open house from 11-4. Here’s a short video on Facebook from the sugar house.

Open house 2018

IMG_3307

This was the picture from my back deck just a few weeks ago. Winter was lovely, but now the view is very different. The spring sun is here, the snow is all melted, and the first open house starts this Sunday, March 3, 2018.

Join us any Sunday in March from 11-4 to see how we make maple syrup, test this year’s crop, and to just enjoy the pleasure of getting outdoors as spring fever sets in.

This is it—your last chance in 2017 to see us making maple syrup! The buds are starting, the temperature is evening out (less variation means no sap). Join us today from 11-4 for our open house. Follow the process of making maple syrup from tree to tasting. During the open house you can watch the sap being collected and boiled, sample the finished product, see the old-fashioned way of making syrup, and enjoy hot mulled maple cider.

Here are the directions. See you soon! https://hardwicksugarshack.wordpress.com/maplesyrup/
