Last of the syrup

So I just returned from a trip to the farm for Easter with my wife’s family. They produced over 1,100 litres of maple syrup back at their sugar shack this year – a record! For the curious, it takes about 40 litres of sap from a maple tree to make 1 litre of syrup. So that means they boiled down over 44,000 litres of sap this past month!! We estimated they were back in the sugar shack boiling for over 200 hours.

Pretty amazing… and delicious 🙂

I decided to post just a few more images from my shoot with Sean at the Laurel Creek sugar shack to mark this record year.
