Growing up in New England, nothing said spring more than hanging buckets on maple trees. The buckets go up in late February when we are still in the grips of winter. The trees sense the warming sun even before we do. They know the warm days of summer are close despite the piles of snow that still blanket the ground.
At Old Orchard Farm, sugaring is about tradition, community, quality and of course, taste! Our sugar house has a traditional post and beam frame, built from wood we cut on our property ourselves and raised by the community. Our equipment is all state of the art food grade. Our sap comes, not just from our trees, but those of the surrounding neighborhood as well. Friends and neighbors gather at the sugar house to help in production or simply to socialize and soak in the sights and smells of spring.
