The “world’s easiest cookies”

08/08/2019 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |

Looking for a quick and fairly healthy cookie recipe? We tried this one and were very happy with the simple yet flavorful result. And get this, there are only 4 ingredients (one being maple syrup of course)! It’s paleo, vegan, and gluten-free!

The recipe for the “world’s easiest cookies” can be found on thekitchn.com

Perfect patio breakfast

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?

Planning a wedding?

Planning a wedding (or shower) this summer or fall? Looking for a unique favor for your guests?
 
We decided to give glass maple leaf bottles of syrup at our wedding in 2014, back when it was just a hobby for us. We have also created small mason jars of syrup as a bridal shower favor in the past. Another possible option could be a large piece of maple candy wrapped in cellophane.

Apple Trees

04/21/2019 | Posted by jake |

At Nova Maple Syrup we love more than just maple trees. This week we planted 17 fruit, 3 nut, and 10 Christmas trees throughout our home property. This adds to the 8 apple trees we planted in 2017/2018 and the 8-10 mature apple trees we’ve found in the yard and woods. In the past we’ve made our own apple cider and are looking forward to making larger quantities in the coming years. The deer will love the additional food sources too, each apple species fruits at a different time of year. We use Milorganite, an organic fertilizer with a scent repulsive to deer, Irish Spring soap (more scent), and a wire cage to keep wildlife away while the trees take off.

Girl Scouts Tour

03/27/2019 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |

Over the weekend we had the pleasure of hosting a local girl scout troop for a tour of our maple farm. They enjoyed seeing the animals (Nova acted as my co-guide) and learning about the process of how maple syrup is made, but I’m pretty sure their favourite part was tasting some of mother nature’s liquid gold!

Road Maples

03/21/2019 | Posted by jake |

Another good run yesterday and overnight, sap should keep flowing today too. We ran the RO while we slept so that we could have an early morning boil instead of our typical afternoon/evening ones that go way too late. In other news our new experimental road maples next door are running great. We use smaller diameter tubing that creates a natural vacuum, the weight of the sap in the downhill tubing pulls on the trees much like a siphon. It’s nothing like our other woods but it’s easy/cheap to setup and requires little maintenance during the season, plus the sap was 2.5% sugar due to all of the sunlight the trees receive in the summer! Thanks Bob/Cody/Craig!
