2018 HHF Maple Season - Week 6

Posted 3/31/2018 7:12am by Harding Hill Farm.

Greetings from all of us at Harding Hill Farm!

First of all, we can't thank our supporters enough for making Maple Weekend such a success! We enjoyed sharing our farm story, teaching about all things maple, and testing out our farm products on your taste buds. We hope you had a great time with family and friends. Additionally, we had some fantastic help from our own family and friends to serve up samples, ice cream, burgers, and more. Thank you! 

 

Did you miss out on all the fun last weekend? No worries. Visit us today and tomorrow, March 31st and April 1st, for our last open sugarhouse event of the season. Its been an incredibly productive week of syrup-making with fantastic weather sticking around for the weekend. Get that last smell and taste of maple before the season is over. A bonus? We are predicting our maple grade will change over to a Dark Robust, but no promises yet. 

 

So how productive was this week? Well, this late maple update is just one result of it. Since the start of maple weekend, the sap has been running strong. In just 7 days, we made over nearly 185 gallons of maple syrup. That brings our season total to just under 570 gallons as of Friday, March 30th. We certainly would be satisfied if we made that much by the end of the season, but this year promises to keep going into April. Will we break any farm records this year? Maybe! 


Easter Weekend Hours - last chance to visit us!

 
Saturday, March 31st - 10am till 4pm
Sunday, April 1st (Easter!) - 11am till 4pm

Maple Syrup, Candy, Cream, Sugar and Grass fed Beef
available for purchase

  


Are you a fan of our Grass Fed Beef?

We have a variety of retail cuts available for sugaring season right at the sugarhouse. This includes ground beef, roasts, chorizo (taco-seasoned) sausage, and other delicious cuts! Please note: we are sold out of steaks! A fresh supply should be available early summer. If you have a special request or a larger order, contact us by email or phone.

Interested in bulk beef (half or whole cow)? Let us know, and I'll share the details. In April, I will contact all potential returning customers. If we have open spots after that, I will then contact customers on our waiting list. Our bulk beef is usually available between August and November. 


Ty and Van have been working hard in the sugarhouse all week producing that liquid gold. It's been a long one for all of us, but certainly a successful season so far. It hasn't been without its surprises though - like a flat tire on the sap truck, a vacuum pump repair, and boiling till 10pm three nights in a row - but sometimes that's just life on the farm! A special thanks to Richard at Hillside Auto/Osborne's Marine for a quick fix on the pump and truck.

With the weather predicted to give us sun and 50 degrees today, we look forward to seeing more visitors, friends, and family this weekend. 


As always contact us with any questions, price sheet, or order requests.

Thank you again for your support, 

~ The Webb Family
