Growing Season Update

Maple Syrup Season

It appears the famous Groundhog was WRONG (again) this year! Spring has come a bit early and that is shifting our maple syrup producers into high gear. With these warm days and cool nights, it’s the perfect weather to start catching the sap run. Did you know that it takes about 40 gallons of raw maple sap to get 1 gallon of finished syrup? That’s A LOT of effort…just do that math!

While maple products taste amazing, they’ve got a lot of powerful health benefits, too. Don’t you want some extra nutrients such as B-Vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium and zinc? Yes, Please!

Here is a fabulous maple granola recipe from Koilene Law of Law Family Farms, producers of some of the syrup for CSA Farmers Market:
