Wow, what a season! We've had beautiful weather for making maple syrup these past two weeks. The fluctuation in temperature has been perfect for making quality syrup. We are pleased to have our biggest amount ever of Grade A Fancy syrup. We have 30 gallons of super sweet, light, mild syrup which we will be using to make maple candy and maple cream. We have been splurging at least every other morning...buckwheat pancakes and fancy grade syrup, Mmmm. So delicious!
We are also planning to bottle some of this light syrup into pretty glass bottles, be watching for them in the next couple weeks!
Grade A Medium & Dark are also in abundance so far this year. We've made about 55 gallons in just two weeks! This syrup is bottled into pint, quart, 1/2 gallon, and 1 gallon jugs, and is available for pick-up at the farm, on the website or at Pine Grove Pantry in Howard, NY, or Beyond Baskets in Corning.
If your family would like a tour of our maple sugarhouse, please contact us to make sure that we are boiling. Please remember that this is a working farm, so caution must be taken to keep your children with you at all times.
We look forward to seeing you at the sugarhouse!
