As we move towards the spring, River is preparing to collect sap. In the past we have tapped trees in January. This year there is no way we are going to be prepared for that! With my recent surgery and much needed rest for healing, River has been taking on some of my duties and has not had as much time to prepare yet!
We have big plans for Maine Maple Sunday! We have an entire pig to smoke in the freezer which we will be serving with Maple barbecue sauce which will be available first come, first serve. There will be pork from the freezer and possibly a few roasting chickens. This year we will be collaborating with Wildfours Gluten Free bakery to make some special maple goodies for the weekend as well as the usual maple treats, maple nuts and maple sugar candy.
We had so much fun last year with Matt Loosigian singing and he has said he will join us this year as well!
Snow is coming this weekend, lots of it! In the meantime River has been running sap lines and scouting new areas to collect sap. We can’t wait for sap season!
