Maple Weekend at Harding Hill Farm

Posted 3/24/2017 3:48pm by The Webb Family.

Greetings from all of us at Harding Hill Farm,

It's all hands on deck as we get ready for the annual New Hampshire Maple Weekend open house. As I write, I have several batches of maple cookies baking away in the HHF kitchen!

 

After much brainstorming, I also settled on Maple BBQ beef short ribs and pork country style ribs for tasting. I'll have some beef chorizo sausage available to try and purchase too. Chorizo is our household addiction - an excellent substitute for taco-seasoned ground beef with some kick! That's enough about our grass fed beef and pork, let's get down to the details about the last week and maple weekend...

The maple season over the last two weeks has been challenging to say the least. We opened last weekend on Sunday only, with limited sap. The good news is we have made about 300 gallons of maple syrup so far this season... so plenty of the fresh stuff available for all. On our 'day off' last Saturday, we traveled to a beautiful piece of family property in Wilmot to take a snowshoe on a portion of the Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway. A gorgeous day to enjoy the outdoors surrounded by maple trees.

  

This week we plugged away on a few small sap runs, but nothing major. Currently it's snowing, well maybe sleeting... there is something frozen coming from the sky! The plan for maple weekend is to boil what sap we have tomorrow to keep the sugarhouse warm and inviting. The weather forecast says the sap should be flowing throughout the weekend. We promise plenty of fresh liquid gold for sampling! Here are the hours: 

~New Hampshire Maple Weekend~

 

Saturday, March 25th ~ 10am till 4pm
Sunday, March 26th ~ 11am till 4pm

The evaporator room will be dry and warm! Don't miss Tyler's fun and informative tours. There's plenty of Amber Rich and Dark Robust maple syrup on hand to purchase. We also have a supply of Maple Cream, Candy, and Sugar. Our freezers are stocked with grass fed beef and pasture-raised pork, be sure to try the samples too!

Check out the Facebook Event and please share with your friends. *Don't forget - Our sugarhouse is located at 131 Route 103 in Sunapee just below the Wendell Vet Clinic. Make sure you do not follow our farm address to Stagecoach Road. 


Harding Hill Farm was in the Spotlight!

If you didn't see via our Facebook page, I took over Dairy Carrie's page for a day to talk about the farm and maple. Carrie is a blogger/speaker/dairy farmer from Wisconsin and an incredible advocate for all forms of Agriculture. At one point, I had over 16,000 views on one post! That is quite impressive for a little farm in Sunapee. I featured our oreo cows, sugaring from sap to syrup, and Ty's tree services. It was super fun, and a few of the videos are featured on our page

 


Please remember to join us this weekend for a celebration of all things maple! Spring is around the corner, so don't miss the sweet smells of the sugarhouse. 

  

As always contact us with any questions, price sheet, or order requests.

Thank you again for your support,
