It's Tree Tapping Time

Tuesday, March 31, 2020
Westwood
Outdoors
It's that time of year again-cold nights, warmer days.  If the sap runs the maple syrup comes. We'll hang our bucket, collect sap and turn it into maple syrup.  The season usually runs February through March but Mother Nature is unpredictable and Old Sugar, our sugar maple tree, is getting on in years. We'll keep our fingers crossed. Come by and check out our operation.  Syrup sampling for all at the end of the season.
