Maine Maple Sunday was amazing! We all had so much fun – as River said – “We get to throw one big party every year – let’s make it great!” The pulled pork was delicious, the maple goodies from Wildflours were sweet and tasty, the music from Matt Loosigian was fantastic and the weather was beautiful!
We had over 350 people join us yesterday – it was more people then we had been expecting and we were thrilled to have you all join us. We even ran out of spoons and had to have a friend make an emergency trip to the store for us (thank you Blueberry for coming through in a hurry!) Our neighbors helped us out serving pork and selling syrup and goodies and cleaning up after the party. Thank you to Matt, Eli, Jess and Erik for your amazing help – we would not have had the same success at this event if it wasn’t for your help!
Our friend Tim helped out all weekend – he was in charge of smoking the pig on Saturday and helping River in the sugar house on Sunday – he is always around to help when we need him – such a blessing – thank you Tim!
We had a few younger helpers this year too – Thank you to Trace and his buddy Rainier for serving up the ice cream with maple syrup and to Lily, Olive and Lilly for helping people sign in so we would know about how many people came so we can plan for next year. Such a great help to have these young people around that are responsible enough to help out in a big way – thank you all!
We are also grateful for all of you – those of you that were able to come and enjoy the day with us and those of you that support us from afar, family and friends – thank you so much!
We hope to see you all again next year!
I was exhausted by the end of the day and I had a sunburn on my face! Since I have been inside so much since my surgery, my face was very pale, not anymore, now I am not quite as red as a cooked lobster, but close – oops – note for next year – wear sunscreen!

Our ice cream was from Roundtop Ice Cream, we love to support other local businesses:
Our maple goodies were from Wildflours Gluten Free Bakery, you can purchase your own gluten free goodies from them in Brunswick, I highly recommend the savory rolls:
