2017 Maple Sugaring Open House
Our March 4, Maple Sugaring Open House landed on a day with frigid temperatures. It was too windy to twirl the popular maple sugar cotton candy, but the boiling sap in the sugar shack provided steamy warmth for over 50 supporters and friends. Some sampled Gaining Ground’s syrup and honey, then compared them to store-bought varieties. Others ventured out to see our barn, completed since our open house last year. Thank you to everyone who joined us for this festive event to finish up our maple sugaring season, which produced 32 gallons of liquid gold this year.
