Wow, this sure is wacky weather!  We’ve been busy in the sugar bush installing a new mainline and taps and got caught in this early spring-like weather that left us scrambling to get all of our equipment ready for the maple season. We started tapping trees on January 31, the earliest we’ve ever tapped – I [...]

Hi Maple Loving Friends! Time flies. Where did 2022 go?  Where did January and February go? We’ve been busy in the sugar bush for a few weeks now, cutting and splitting firewood and getting our maple syrup equipment ready for another season.  We started tapping the trees on February 4, the earliest we’ve ever tapped.  The [...]

Hi Maple Friends! To say the last year has been a challenge is an understatement.  We could never have imagined that 2020 would have turned out like it did.  And here it is 2021 and we're still facing the challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Needless to say, work in OurSugarBush continues regardless! We've worked on our [...]

Maple Syrup Season 2020

Where did the winter go?  Or did we even have much of a winter?  I keep expecting the big dump of snow that lasts more than 3 days but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.  So it’s time to tap the maple trees and get ready for another maple syrup season. Actually, we’ve been [...]

As the spring warms up, geez, it’s taken a long time hasn’t it? the sap flow starts to dwindle and our maple syrup season will come to a close.  We love making maple syrup and it surely is a labour of love, but all good things must end.  BUT, we have one more event and it’s [...]

What a great maple week!

Last weekend was our annual Family and Friends Day at OurSugarBush.  Lots and lots of visitors enjoyed our little piece of maple goodness in OurSugarBush and we filled lots of bellies with pancakes and fresh maple syrup.  I even heard one young fella named Rayj claim “those were the best pancakes I ever had!”  Wow, now [...]

FINALLY!  The sap is running!

For several years now, we have tapped in February and made maple syrup before the end of the month.  Last year we tapped in January, believe it or not and made syrup in February.  This year… not!  Here it is mid March, St. Patrick’s Day, and we’ve finally made some maple syrup.   The sap finally started [...]

What’s with the weather?

Ok…what’s with the weather?  I’ve said many times this winter that I like winter.  I do.  I like it when winter acts like winter and spring acts like spring and summer acts like, you get the picture.  So winter is definitely acting like winter and it’s about time it was warming up. We tapped the trees [...]

Our weather has been crazy for the past month.  From sub zero temperatures to snow, then rain, then freezing rain, and sub zero temperatures again is the definition of a Canadian winter weather roller coaster!  But as I look at the 14 day forecast, I figure this craziness can't last forever and the temperatures are predicted [...]
