The call of the crow signified the return of spring. Families moved to the sugaring camp. While the men were off hunting, the women and children would stay in the camp, collecting maple sap and boiling it down to sugar, by placing hot rocks from the fire, into the sap.

Later they would teach the early European Settlers the art of Maple Sugaring, and the process has passed down from one generation to another. Today we enjoy nature's sweet treat. People from all over the world delight to try a taste of this delectable golden syrup.

This past fall Steve and a couple of good carpentry friends, constructed and built a beautiful covered bridge over the creek in the bush. The beams were harvested from some of the hardwood that grow on our property. You are going to love the background for your pictures!

First Draw off of 2014!

Posted on 26 March, 2014 at 17:15 Comments comments (0)

After waiting for one week to gather enough maple sap to fire up the evaporator, we did it Friday!

The weather has been too cold for the sap to flow up the trees yet.  This is a very late Maple Syrup season.

Boiling off around 200 gallons of sap has taken approximately 9 hours and 1 1/2 cords of wood, we have finished off 3 gallons of maple syrup.
