HHF Maple Season - Week Five

Posted 4/10/2015 7:50am by The Webb Family.

Greetings from Harding Hill Farm, 

The sap has been flowing, we have been boiling, and the maple syrup tally is growing. Mother Nature also had her say with warm spring-like temps last weekend followed by a couple inches of snow on the ground Thursday morning. The joys of New England weather!

As much as we love maple season, its getting to be time for a little sleep and maybe some spring skiing. With warmer temps on the way, join us for our last open sugarhouse and boil on Saturday, April 11th from 11am - 4pm. See below for details. 

Maple Season Update!

We have been full steam ahead (literally) as we made syrup every day this week. We made well over 100 gallons of maple syrup since last Friday, which brings us to over 320 gallons.

Last Sunday our grade changed to a Dark, Robust/Grade B. We do have plastic jugs in various sizes available for the Dark fans. However, the syrup lightened up to a beautiful Amber to almost Golden this week. Mother Nature is definitely messing with us. 

If you haven't looked at the weather forecast for the next week, spring is on its way. We expect to have our last good sap runs into the weekend, and warmth should end it as temperatures hit 60 during the day and above freezing at night. It has been an unpredictable season for all, but a great one shared with family and many new and old friends. Join us for our final open sugarhouse this Saturday!
