We have been very busy getting ready for Maple Weekend. A few of the activities we will have are: an old fashioned wood fired back yard evaporator or flat pan set up and running; we have also confirmed that we will have “The Dear Alpaca Farm” with us all four days with some of their Alpacas. You will be able to pet them if you want to; they are so soft! If you are wondering, Alpacas are not the animals that spit at you.
Watch for more Maple Weekend Activities and updates. We guarantee family fun for all ages when you visit The Orebed Sugar Shack.
In case you haven’t heard, Brianne & Bill are expecting their first child in the very near future so we might have an addition to the family in the midst of the Maple Weekend Festivities. We wish them all the best. Stay tuned for details on this also.
We had a record amount of maple sap today (a record for the last two years anyway). Since it takes thirty to fifty gallons of syrup to make a gallon of pure maple syrup, we will probably be up late tonight.
