We are gearing up for the 2017 maple season. We love the tradition of family and friends coming to tap, collect sap, and boil. It's such fun to work together and have the resulting delicious pure maple syrup!
If you are interested in helping, give us a call. We enjoy sharing the work and the satisfaction!
Of course, it's hard to know exactly when the sap will be flowing, but we are preparing for a mid-February through late-March season.
We had a great season at the Millbrook Farmer's Market (May-October, Saturdays 9-1) and the Hyde Park Farmer's Market (May-October, Saturdays 9-2).
We enjoyed working at the Dutchess County Fair Maple House again this year; lots to sample, and great Maple Cotton Candy! (come see us August 22-27, 2017)
We also like to participate in special events, e.g. Regina Coeli Holiday Fairs (Nov 12) and Castle Village Holiday Fair (Dec 3).
This year's Honey harvest was delicious! It was later than usual, perhaps due to the drought, but worth the wait.
We also made some more of that delicious Aberdeen Farm Jam -- wild blackberries were plentiful this season.
