On March 20, 2014, Meg and I were honored by a special visit from our US Senator Jeanne Shaheen. She stopped by to help kick off our Maple Weekend Open House. Senator Shaheen talked with us about our energy saving equipment, the maple season to date, and the recently passed Farm Bill with its provisions for sugarmakers.
In 1998, then-Governor Shaheen visited our sugarhouse and tapped a tree to celebrate the start of maple season in New Hampshire. During her visit this year, she paid us a great compliment when she autographed one of our sap buckets with the inscription “Keep producing the best maple syrup in New Hampshire.”
