Maple

 

Maple season here in Mount Holly doesn’t begin on a specific date … we wait for Mother Nature to show signs that it’s time to tap the trees, collect the sap and begin boiling!

Following a family tradition Р7 generations Рwe collect sap in buckets, as well as pipeline.  Boiling is over a wood-fired arch, just like Grandpa Hawkins.

Maple season is one season enjoyed by the entire family. ¬†There’s something about that sweet smell of sap turning into syrup, that just warms the body and soul.
