Humble beginnings

07/26/2021 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |

We were reminded of our roots over the weekend when some friends of ours found the favors we gave at our wedding back in 2014. We opened the last of ours from that season about a year ago and it was still delicious (maple syrup can keep for quite a long time when left sealed)!

The second picture gives you a glimpse of our humble, hobbyist beginnings, back when we were boiling sap over an open fire in our backyard. You might notice that Nova was there to oversee the process back then as well!

2021 Maple Season

04/03/2021 | Posted by Hailee Leveto |

Now that the 2021 maple season has wrapped up we’d like to share a slideshow of “one second every day”.

We were able to make about 80% of last year’s crop, despite only 3 weeks of sap flow to work with. We tapped our trees in January, but temperatures stayed below freezing all of February and we were not able to boil until March. Rising temperatures without any dips below freezing and low precipitation dried out the trees, and sap flow slowed down to a trickle after mid-late March. Once we heard the peepers and saw the buds on the trees it was time to call it quits.

We’ve started to pull taps now so that the trees have time to heal before next season.

 

First boil(s) of 2021!

It’s hard to believe the first boil of 2021 didn’t happen until March! We boiled over 1,000 gallons on Tuesday and Thursday, with a little help from our friends, and still have sap left over. Take a look at some of the pictures we took.
