Spring's just around the corner...

Scott started tapping yesterday! Finally temperatures warmed up enough to get to the woods.  He doesn't like to tap in colder than minus 5.  So far so good...apparently he's 25% done. 


There's still lots of snow in the woods - he's on snowshoes.  Pretty good conditions though - firm snow and cold. Sure better than last year!


Things are hopping at the restaurant and sugar camp down the hill - we're gearing up with new staff and welcoming back returning ones. 


First school booking was this week - the whole Scotsburn Elementary School.  100 children learning about maple, eating pancakes and maple syrup, listening to stories, rolling their own sugar-on-snow and hiking in snowy woods.  Lots of the kids had made their own syrup before.  Gotta love rural kids!
