To make the syrup volunteers must gather the sap, add sap to tank, measure and skim the foam before transfering to heater. This is a long process before getting the delicious tasting maple syrup. While the weather is warm the trees continue to provide sap but when the weather gets cold the sap stops running. The volunteers are glad the weather has been warm and the sap is running.
RHS sells the 1/2 pint for $7.00 and the 1 pint for $12.00. Stop at the Historical Park when you have time and watch the men cooking syrup and get a bottle for yourself.
If you stop and no one is there come back for Maple Syrup Day, March 26th, 1 pm to 4 pm and enjoy the festivities and get your bottle of tasty maple syrup.
