What People are Saying...
Out of a small corner of the world comes a product that only two percent of the worlds’ population has ever tasted. Maple syrup is woven in to the culture of Vermont, where finding sixth generation sugar makers is not that uncommon.
In my sugarhouse hangs a 4x6 photo in a stained wood frame. It shows a man and a dog standing in front of a sugar shack made out of scaffolding and plywood. This is my great grandfather “Curly”. He was the last person in my family to make maple syrup. When my family and I moved to our farm in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont three years ago, I started to follow his lead. I am now 17. As the weather warms and we enter March of 2020, I will head to the woods to tap for my third season sugaring. Each tap that is set in a tree, and each log that is thrown on the fire connects us to generations who have worked the land, who have, every March, tapped trees, and boiled syrup. They have woven maple sugaring into a Vermont tradition.
I hope that you enjoy this season as much as I do.
