Cows

10/06/2019 | Posted by jake |

Meet our latest addition to the farm, Cheeseburger (left) hanging out with his pal Steak (right). Steak had just about ate our grass down to nothing over the last few months before we added Cheeseburger to the lot, so we finally started feeding them the hay from our post last month. They do love the occasional treat of fresh apples with a scoop of grain, however cows evolved on grass so we want to make sure that’s their primary diet.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Streusel Muffins

09/26/2019 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |

 

Now that it’s officially fall we couldn’t wait any longer to try a recipe we found online for pumpkin cream cheese streusel muffins! We substituted our maple sugar in the batter, and maple pebbles in the streusel topping. They are deliciously moist, and taste like fall!

What are your favorite fall recipes? Have you tried swapping maple sugar for white sugar yet?

Hay Field

09/11/2019 | Posted by jake |

 

At Nova Maple Syrup we have 272 acres of land, of which 265 are tapped. In addition to a two acre pine stand and two acres of yard we have a three acre field near Greenville. Last year our neighbor planted hay, we’ve harvested two cuts so far this year. This hay will completely feed our two cows and help feed our neighbor’s herd over the winter. Hobby farming beef and birds is a nice break from the large scale maple farming we do, that is if moving 100+ bales of hay on an 85 degree day can really be called a break!

A toasted croissant with maple cream – a perfect patio breakfast to kick off the weekend!
 
Even though it’s called maple cream, there is no dairy in this rich spread. You can put it on waffles to go if you don’t have time to sit down and eat. We get it, life is busy!

Tank Removal

06/19/2019 | Posted by jake |

Back in 2015 when we put this 1000 gallon nurse tank in the upper story of our shop we thought we’d never have to move it again. Times change, and it had to come out. Fortunately it was much easier to take out, requiring just one man and tractor compared to putting it in which took three men and a chain hoist (we had not yet purchased our Kubota). We’ll be listing this tank for sale pretty soon if anyone is interested

Coupon code reminder

06/10/2019 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |

When I was in middle school, I had to write an essay about my hero. I chose my DAD. He has always been a shining example of what it looked like to be a loving husband and involved father, all while achieving a successful career. He has always believed in me and pushed me to reach my potential – in school, in sports, and in life. I cannot put into words how much his love and support means to me.

How has your dad or father figure affected your life?

Don’t forget about our Father’s Day promotion – use coupon code DAD16 for 16% off all purchases made through our website (Novamaple.com/store).
