We did in fact get sap on Saturday and had a great boil with Bob Williams, the original owner of the farm and his partner, Glenda. It’s traditional to have them out for at least one boil during the
season and it’s always special. They both fired, chatted with guests and staff and it was so special to have them back at the sugar camp.
Earltown had what I hear was their
biggest pancake supper ever - perhaps over 800 guests. Earltown Store was hopping and McNutt’s Maple had a big day too selling products at the supper. We were happy to support the hall once again
by donating the maple syrup for the tables. What a great day for Earltown!
Collected sap Tuesday, gonna boil again
We’re still making amazing
syrup. It has turned into one of those years in the best possible way and we’re extremely grateful. 🙏🏼
We’re also totallly honoured to
share a week of learning and observing and tasting maple at Sugar Moon Farm with these two. Edmonton comes east! Kevin Kossawan and Giselle Courteau - be SURE to check out these folks. More about this adventure later....
This season is turning out to be somewhat record-breaking in other areas of “maple country” too. We’re hearing stories of sugar camps in Ontario who are in the midst of a 21 hour boil and still going
That’s the nature of this food. We’re so utterly and completely dependent upon weather and gratefully accept whatever the trees decide to give us.
