Tappin' The Maples

It's that time of year again & the folks from Goranson Farm have been collecting the sap that has been flowing from our Maple trees for several weeks now.  Once collected it goes to the Sugar House to be boiled down into the very best Maine Maple syrup.  We can't wait to have our Maple Syrup drizzled over Vanilla Ice Cream or to sweeten up a nice Ham in the crock pot.  If you have a favorite use for Maple Syrup we'd love to hear about it in the comments below.

For a preview of how Maple Syrup is made, check out this short video clip from "Goranson Farm - An Uncertain Harvest,"  a documentary made about our local organic farm here in Dresden, ME.

This year's Maine Maple Celebration at Goranson Farm takes place on the 23rd & 24th of March.  For more info visit their website, call  (207) 737-8834 or email at organic@goransonfarm.me
