Updates for October 2023
October The new sapping season starts in late winter; typically from mid-March to mid-April in most maple-syrup producing areas, when temperatures are below freezing at night and above freezing during the day. Tours
usually begin in early Spring! That's a great time to visit a maple sugar orchard or sugarworks and see a sugaring demonstration; watch them make maple syrup!
Where are Maple Syrup farms/orchards/sugarworks, etc.? Well, they're not in Hawaii or Florida, for sure. They are concentrated in the northeast and upper midwest in the US and the eastern half of Canada, even though maple trees do grow in the northwest.

Phone: 207-498-6565.In the Spring, Maple Syrup is collected from
the sugar maple. The sap is being produced in the trees during
the summer by the sunlight on the chlorophyll of the leaves,
which makes sugar that is stored in the tree and then dissolved
by the sap in the Spring. The sap is collected from the trees
very slowly. It is made up mostly of water, containing only 2%
to 4% sugar. The sap is boiled in an evaporator to eliminate the
water. It takes 35 to 40 gallon of sap to make one gallon of
syrup. On the average, a maple tree can produce about 8 gallons
of sap or approximately one quart of syrup each season.

There are two ways in which to meet
your pumpkin needs. Make an appointment for a farm scenic
hayride to our seven acre pumpkin field where the whole family
can walk the fields in search of that Great Pumpkin or you can
look through the many pumpkins we have harvested from the field
and have on display next to the dairy bar. There are always
hundreds of pumpkins to pick through. Pack up the family
and walk through our fields to tag your own Christ tree in the
Fall and winter!!! You may come back and cut your own or we will
cut it for you and have it ready for you to pick up! (UPDATED:
