Swedish Pancakes

12/02/2019 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |
While my family was visiting for Thanksgiving I decided to make some Swedish pancakes (“plättar”, pronounced ‘plettuce’). They’re a cross between a pancake and a crepe, and they are delicious! My great-grandmother used to make them for us when we would visit as a way of sharing her heritage with us. She passed down her recipe (which I will include below) as well as her cast iron plett pan. Of course we enjoyed it with generous amounts of Nova maple syrup!
 
Plättar Recipe:
2 eggs
3 cups milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour

Addition Update #3

11/22/2019 | Posted by jake |

We’re getting closer to move-in day on our addition! The ceiling is up along with most of the wall panels. Next week we’ll finish framing the cold storage/RO rooms, spray foam the cold storage walls, connect all of the electric wires we previously ran, block off the garage door opening, and turn on the heat! This should make our candy packaging much more enjoyable, it was pretty frigid in the sugar shack last week

Farmhouse Rental Reviews

It’s been fun meeting so many new people from renting out the farmhouse on airbnb over the last few months. Everyone seems to be enjoying their stay – check out some of the reviews we have received!

Addition Update

Our addition is really coming along over just a few short weeks! We poured concrete today and most of the exterior is now finished. Next up includes outside touchup, rough in electric, hang insulation, frame two rooms, inside sheet metal, run French drain and gutter, and install 12×10′ garage door. After that we can turn on the heat and start move in/setting up!

New Candy Machine

11/02/2019 | Posted by Hailee Leveto | | 1 Comment

Our new custom order candy machine will help us meet holiday demand this season. Our old machine churned the syrup slow, only filled one mold at a time, and was difficult to use. Our new machine churns faster, makes consistent candy, and can fill up to four molds at once. It will be a huge time saver this season seeing as we sold over 1,000 pounds of candy in December last year! As a bonus it makes cream, we’ll post a video of that soon.

We love fall on the farm!

10/30/2019 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |
There’s a dip in our driveway that’s magical this time of year, with the orange leaves fluttering to the ground in the autumn sunlight. We took a break from working for an impromptu photoshoot with Nessie, who is a mini Australian Shepherd.
We love fall on the farm not only for its beautiful colours, but also the cooler temperatures that allow working in the woods to be a bit more comfortable.

  

Sugar sifter

10/26/2019 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |

We recently ordered a custom maple sugar sifter. It will eliminate clumping and ensure consistent quality in every container.  The sugar is packaged while it’s sifted, allowing us to pack up to 600 pounds of sugar in a single day!

Check out the picture below and click here for video of our sugar sifter in action.
