A Drop in the Bucket
Greetings From the Farm! February 2015
We had a wonderful, colorful fall foliage season this year with LOTS of visitors! We have lots of wonderful syrup and products for your year round gifts. We are launching some new gift packs and can customize any of our items in a gift box for you!
The grading system has changed this year, broadening our syrup range to include the wonderful cooking flavor of dark syrup that is so wonderful to use, but has been unavailable in retail containers for a long time. Those of you who remember this will love using it in your kitchens and everyday cooking!
BIG NEWS! We took top honors at the Vermont Farm Show with almost a Full Sweep of the Maple Syrup and Products contest. Best of class in Amber Rich & Dark Robust Maple syrup and an Honorable Mention for Golden Delicate Syrup! Best of Class for Granulated Sugar and Best of Show for Maple Products with the Granulated Sugar. Honorable Mention on Maple Cream as well. Honorable Mention products were in contention for Best of Class! Not bad! Glenn was awarded the Outstanding Sugarmaker Award for his many contributions to the maple industry over the past 40 years. What a wonderful time we had!
The sugarhouse is a wonderful place to visit if you are here in the months of March & April. Sample syrup warm from the evaporator and join us for Sugar-on-Snow, a favorite Vermont treat!
Many of you stopped by again this year ~ we sure enjoy visiting with you! We hope your trip was an enjoyable and safe one. Chris and Danielle both had such fun visiting with you too!
