                                                     Clear tree sap turning into amber liquid gold.







       We watched the wood chips being fed into the boiler.




                                    And here comes our gallon of 100% pure Maple Syrup.





Blessed are those who give so much.
Over 40 gallons of tree sap to make us one gallon of maple syrup. Thank You trees, and Thank You Sugar Makers.

Thank You Davis Family Maple, we had a great time, the sugar on snow was delicious. Our Vermont grade A medium amber gallon of syrup will soon be sweetening up many a dish at our home.

Thank You all at Putnam Family Farm, we enjoyed the tour, watching the fire roar, learning about the long history of the farm (see their website), watching you make sugar on snow, and tasting the sugar on snow. Our gallon of Vermont Grade B  for hearty robust maple flavor, fresh off the tap was still hot when we arrived home.

Thank You End O Road Maple, we enjoyed petting the horses and sheep. The maple frosted doughnuts, hot waffles with maple sugar and maple syrup, and maple lemonade were all real tasty. Our grandson will surely like the snowman bottle of maple syrup.

Wish we had time to visit more sugar makers. Maybe next year. It sure was fun and tasty. Glad we took home lots of maple to enjoy throughout the year.

Maple syrup - one of the Superfoods.
