Sap Season

It smells like spring.

Yes, there are still a few feet of snow on the ground, and the roads have hardly become muddy yet, but the sun is shining, the air is warming, and the sweet smells of hay and manure in the softening snow signal that a change is beginning.

In the last weeks, we have installed new lines in the sugar woods and completed tapping around 400 maple trees.  Now the sap is beginning to flow into the sugar house, and soon the boiling will begin to thicken the sap into syrup.
