Arlow Case, Jr., owner of Sweet Wind Farm in East Hartland, sets a tap to begin his maple sugar operation. His goal is to get 4,000 taps in each season, tapping trees in Granby, Hartland and other neighboring towns. He makes 200 to 1,000 gallons of syrup each year. He has made syrup since the age of 8 at “Arlow’s Sugar Shack” when he and his family lived on Bushy Hill Rd in Granby. Enjoy the fruits of his labor at the annual Maple Festival at Case’s farm, 339 South Rd, East Hartland, on Saturday, March 9, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
