080425 - 2008 Maple Syrup Day @ the Farm

We had a GREAT day for the 2008 Maple Syrup Day on the Farm!

The weather made us nervous with spitting rain and clouds. But as the day went on and our friends showed up the weather lifted and the day was just perfect.
There were 67 folks in attendance: family, friends and lots of children and Scouts

People enjoyed fireside chats, playing in the barn, cats, pony, tasty treats, and fresh warm maple syrup.
Diana gave a great presentation on conservation and planting trees.

Roger gave the lesson on how the maple tree sap is collected and then boiled down.

I took the scouts on a hike up to the falls and told the stories of the area.
There are those that could not be with us today and those that have passed on. Even when not present, somehow we all meet up at the Farm on days like these. The spirit of Family and friends is what this event and the Farm are all about. Thanks to all those who help make this years event a success and to all of those that attended.
