NEW FLAVOR: ANISE (Black Licorice)
When we started our farm many years ago, we made a list of what we wanted our farm to be. One of our items was to "be a good steward of the land that God has given us".
Those of us in New England are well aware of of our current lack of rain. By some calculations our area is down more than 16" since January 2015. While some rain has fallen to lessen the drought, our area continues to be dry.
Maple trees are not known for their drought resistance. Coupled with the gypsy moth caterpillar infestation this summer, they are stressed. Their leaves changed color and dropped sooner this past fall than in previous years.
Bearing in mind all these things, we have decided that we will be tapping lightly. This means that only the bigger diameter trees will be tapped and only one tap per tree, no matter the diameter.
While this tactic will keep the trees from further stress and increase their chances of surviving the current weather pattern, it will limit the amount of syrup we can produce. We will attempt to counter this drop in taps per tree by tapping more trees at local farms. While this will give us more sap, it is also more labor to collect it. This will obviously hurt our bottom line, but we take our stewardship of God's creation seriously and are willing to make that sacrifice.
We hope you will continue to support our farm and visit us during sugaring season in 2017.
