Sweet Times

Thank you to all of our visitors this past weekend. With all of the old faces, new faces, family and friends. My heart is truly overflowing. Unfortunately, I was not able to speak with every one of you individually. We will now be open here at the sugar house by appointment. We will have eggs hatching through out the spring and the piglets should arrive soon. Thank you one and all.
Your Sugarmomma

Here is an update on our upcoming annual open house at 213 Ridge Rd. Northwood, NH on March 27Th and 28Th from 9am to 3pm rain or shine.
For those of you who have never been here, not only is it a fun time for the whole family, it is also educational.
After a hayride to the sugar house, where you can see how the syrup is made and sample our products, you may choose to enjoy a pancake meal featuring our freshly made maple syrup.
Kathy O'Donnell of Country Roads Farm in Webster, NH will be offering pony rides.
While your here, take time to meet Jethro and Tony our Scottish Highlander bulls, see our son Nicholas' heritage breed chicken and his chicks that are scheduled to be hatched.
Finally don't forget to check out our maple products which include candy, cream, cotton candy, nuts, pop corn and ice cream all made with our pure maple syrup.
No purchase is necessary, just show up and enjoy the sweet smell of maple steam and the ambiance of a working sugar house. We look forward to seeing you. Please feel free to bring your camera and capture the moment.
