The 2009 maple syrup season is here! Today at Sapsucker Farms is tree tapping day. There is still some snow on the ground, but it is quickly melting and turning into mud. Ahhhh, what fun it is to play in the mud! It only took a little over three hours to set all 500 taps, tubes, buckets and lids. It was all made possible with the help of 10 friends, along with 25 hot dogs, two bags of chips, three cases of pop, and a large package of cookies. Thanks to all who helped out.
The sap should be running very soon. We'll keep you posted on what's happening here on the farm throughout the sugaring season.
