Spring has arrived on the farm

The 2017 maple season is over and overall it was a good season with just over 5000 gallons of sap collected. Spring seems to have arrived suddenly and life is a bit hectic around the farm these days with clean up from sugaring season, firewood cutting, seedling planting etc all happening simultaneously. We also recently inoculated some red oak logs with Shiitake mushroom spores so that we can harvest our own, organically grown mushrooms. We will be holding a mushroom log workshop here on the farm on May 13th (more details to follow). We hope this finds everyone well and many thanks to all our family, friends and visitors who made this past sugaring season a success.
