1967 was the year we started our maple syrup business. The original sugar-house was located in the woods approximately ½ mile from the roadway. Sap was collected in buckets, transferred to a large horse-drawn wooden tub, and then taken to the sugar-house for processing.
As a way to market our maple syrup and maple products, the “Sugar Shack” on Galen Hill was constructed in 1973. We are now able to have our customers and friends watch the actual process of sap-to-maple syrup . . . an experience enjoyed by many.
