Maine Maple Sunday

Love and maple syrup goes together.
— Gordon Lightfoot

Every year in early March New England sugar shacks start to gather and boil the woody and unique sweetness of pure maple tree sap.

It's a tradition in our family to visit all the maple shacks open for Maine Maple Sunday. It's a special time once a year when all the sugar houses throw open their doors and give everyone a taste of the year's crop and a demonstration of how the boiling works.

They all usually have samples of this years syrup and some even have a full breakfast, one horse open sleigh rides, cross country skiing, farm visits, and a full farm store.
