Schoolyard Sugarbush Business History
Every year our maple business has grown and visitors are often amazed by the changes they see. Our first "sugarshack" was large enough for two seasons. We built the "Appletree Pt. Rd.Sugarhouse" the third year and we still use the structure for storage of maple syrup equipment and supplies today. In 2011 we moved into our new "sugarhouse." Now we wonder how we ever got by before the new building. In 2011 we tapped 14,000 trees and brought in 400,000 gallons of sap. The average ratio for the season was 53 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup!
