Maple Weekend 2017
A chilly winter weekend for this year's NH Maple Weekend. We started in Warner at the church breakfast and enjoyed seeing people from day's past. Then headed out with our list, map, and some anticipation for a fun day.
Stop #1 Baker's Syrup.
Stop #2, down the hill to Bates Maple Syrup.
Showing Ray how to measure the viscosity of the sap.
Stop #3 Roger's Maple Syrup.
Inside a kind gentleman showed us how they add wood to the fires. Temps inside were just over 500 degrees today. He said they can get up to 1800 degrees sometimes.
Stop #4 Kimball's Sugar House.
Quick stop over at Yankee Farmer's Market for some fresh meat and saw the maple jugs the YFM team tapped earlier in the week.
Stop #5 Beaver Meadowbrook Farm was nice and toasty warm with lots of maple treats.
Stop #6 Courser Farm Sugar Kings.
