Det skal I lave

My guests are invited to join me in making and tasting old fashion maple syrup. Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with a visit of the installations involved, namely the sugar cabin, and they are made to feel at home. I will explain the 'how it works' of making old fashion maple syrup, including how maple trees are tapped, maple water is collected (with buckets on trees and a horse-drawn sleigh) and boiled down, and maple syrup measured and filtered. Tasting will occur while I explain the syrup's labelling as clear, amber or dark and discussions will be had on the different tastes of the syrup given its color. Also, I will talk about implications of weather, for example, how weather controls taste and syrup production. I will explain why syrup can only be made in spring. Then, guests will be asked to participate in the making of the maple syrup. This will involve collecting and transporting the sugar water from the trees to the horse-drawn sleigh, hence walking in the maple grove. For participants with reduced mobility, they will be asked to guard the fire and boiler and might be equipped with a CB. Participation of guests is at their discretion. Participating guests will be provided with any necessary equipment, including snow shoes.

For 6 years, I have been making organic Old Fashion Maple Syrup on my maple grove. My syrup, I sell locally and in markets, and I do tastings. I have found that the public is greatly interested in participating in this activity. It brings families and friends together in the great outdoors of spring. People are interested in the process from beginning to end, it's cultural and historical implication, and enjoy visiting the maple grove. Old Fashion Maple Syrup is also difficult to come by because industrially made maple syrup, which does not taste the same, is what is mainly available in stores. In contrast, I make my syrup like it was made 200-yrs ago without the use of electricity or machines. For ex., the sap water is collected with the use of a horse-drawn sleigh and then boiled down for hours with wood combustion.

Det er inkluderet

Mad
Some of my Old Fashion Maple Syrup will be available for tasting.
Udstyr
I have two or three pairs of snowshoes to provide for walking in the woods and in our trails.

Her skal du være

The activity unravels on my 100-acre maple grove. On this land, there is a sugar cabin where the maple water is boiled down. The activity will start and finish at this sugar cabin. Once guests are settled, work horses will be harnessed and I with guests will go collect maple water from trees to the horse-drawn sleigh. A caravan is also accessible as a common space, with a wood stove and kitchen amenities.

Flere tips

Guests should know that this is a 'rustic' (glamor-camping) type experience. For instance, the bathroom facility is an out house. Guests might want to go to the bathroom before they arrive. Wear long underwear and warm clothes. Favour clothes that are 'work' clothes over 'city' clothes.
