Tomorrow, Sunday, March 28th is our last open house of the season. That month flew by!
We have a good size group coming to visit us from the Heifer Project of Rutland, MA. This organization does great stuff in the world, and we’re happy that they will be stopping by. The Heifer Project helps families across the globe improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways by giving them gifts of livestock and training. In exchange, they ask recipients to give one of its animal’s offspring to another family in need.
We’ll be open from 11-4, our usual Sunday hours. And, believe it or not, I think we will be boiling. Joe thought the season was over last week and started pulling taps and cleaning tubing. He kept his options open at Moose Brook sugar bush, though. Because that spot stays cool and we have it on a vacuum pump system, we were hoping for one last run. It looks like that will be the case. Last night it was down in the teens, and today is up over 40. So the sap is running. Check out the video and see the system at work. It’s easier to see than to explain in words.
Hope we see you tomorrow. We have plenty of maple syrup, and we have candy all made. We plan on making the cream tonight. Wonderful farm fresh sweets for those Easter baskets!

Hi, our son Trevor (12) is just setting up a websight as a project, so we’ve been checking out other sights. YOur’s showed your fun loving manor and was one of our favorites. I loved your videos. I hope your season was better than ours. We were down by 2/3’s. UGH! I’m waiting on pins and needles to see what he comes up with. He started this at the end of the season so no doubt it’s a work which will change. Keep up the good work. Fondly, CArla
Thanks, I’m glad you like the site! I enjoy making the videos (Joe gets to do all the hard work while I tag along filming!). Wishing Trevor good luck with your farm site.
Yeah, our year was not good in terms of production. The vacuum pump was our savior, giving us more volume than we would have otherwise. That’s the way the cookie crumbles (or should I say that’s the way the sap flows?)
Wishing you well,
