January…

We’ve received over seven feet of new snow, we’re soaking in subzero temperatures, and December taps set chest-high are now below the snow line requiring us to dig out drop lines and buckets. All part of life on Zoar Road!

Over the spring and summer, we participated in two fabulous fairs in Sharon Springs, New York. There we were regularly challenged by our prospective customers to select for them “the most maple-y maple” syrup we had available. I had to laugh and have them taste several batches to make my point…honestly, I am not even sure what “maple” means anymore!

Quite a weekend here in the North Country! Friday was a congenial evening enjoying the beautiful music of Quill & Plow at the Barley Pub, and ended stretched out with a cat and a friend on a blanket watching the Milky Way and fireflies darting through the pasture. Saturday was spent working around the farms and adjourned in front of a bonfire with some good reading and conversation.
