“The Secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” — Dan Millman
Welcome to the 44th season at Mapletree Farm! East Concord’s best kept secret and the only continuously operating sugarhouse in the capital city.
Last year, we focused on the changes that had occurred here at Mapletree Farm, which were huge. That hasn’t stopped for 2019 and while most are more subtle than last year, they are still very significant. Over the past year, we continued with a few smaller building upgrades and finishing touches, a few equipment upgrades, more taps and of course, a new website. Mapletreefarmnh.com is now e-commerce friendly for the ease and convenience to our awesome customers. As with any change, there are always challenges, so bear with us as we work through a few kinks. As always we are only a phone call or e-mail away if you prefer personal assistance.
A self-guided tour in New Hampshire’s only planted maple orchard in production leads visitors into the building at the same place that the sap enters. Visitors can then follow the sap at 2% sugar content to syrup at 66%, asking any and every question that comes to mind, along the way.
It is fairly well known in the maple circle that here at Mapletree Farm we generally do not tap as early as others. We still like to wait until later in February, sometimes even March, when the sap is sweeter. This year, Mother Nature has largely cooperated with us and our later tapping has been timed well with the weather, so we are now on our way to making some great syrup and plenty is available for sale.
This year New Hampshire Maple Weekend and our Annual Open House Weekend is March 23rd and 24th. Come and have a Blast! Shake off the cabin fever with a sugarhouse visit to see how our maple syrup is made, filtered and packaged. And as always feel free to ask us questions. We love to tell people about maple!
