Hands-on maple sugar demo

About 25 people turned out at the Emery Farm Sugar House on March 18 for a hands-on demonstration of how maple syrup is made. Granby Land Trust Board Member Dave Emery taught his visitors, many of whom were fewer than three feet tall, about the process of sugaring, from sap collection, to boiling, to the filtering and bottling of the finished product. Everyone was invited to taste some Emery Farm maple syrup—served, deliciously, over snow! Each child got to take home a small bottle of syrup of his/her own. The Granby Land Trust thanks Dave and Jenny Emery for hosting this wonderful event.
