Summer means…Strawberry shortcake!

06/08/2021 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |

Living on a maple farm means living in the country. We have several Amish neighbors and if you don’t already know – they are the best people to get strawberries from. Fresh, juicy, and flavorful!

We decided to use some of the strawberries we bought to make strawberry shortcake last night. Of course, instead of adding regular sugar, we opted for Nova maple sugar!

These are really easy to whip up quickly using Pillsbury dough (we used Grands, but you could use crescent rolls) and cool whip.

As you can see, our 3-year-old was patiently waiting to chow down after we finished taking a quick picture!


Underground Culverts

Unfortunately maple tubing often blocks roads and trails. For the last six years we didn’t have access to a back road by our pumphouse. Occasionally we would unhook the lines but it was never a great solution. This last season after the lines were unintentionally ripped down we decided to send them underground and improve drainage. We’re always looking for ways to improve our tubing systems and are looking forward to the day we can install more!

This leak checking video was produced by one of our interns during the 2021 season. Originally planned for internal training use, we decided to make it public in for anyone interested. It gives a basic overview of our sugar bush leak checking procedures at Nova Maple Syrup.
