The gift of Maple Trees...

Pin It Now! The sweet taste of pure Maple Syrup. It's a tradition for our families to drive out to random parts of New York and Vermont to get fresh maple syrup and visit the sugar houses.
I wonder if they've ever been here...
I just find this can fascinating! This sweet little log cabin tin comes with a lot of history. Read the story of this third generation family run Maple Syrup producers...started in the 1930's and still at it! or follow them on Facebook

Check out the listing here on Etsy

Tin can reads on the bottom
"The Indians called it "SINZIBUKWUD" The Indians taught the first white settlers how to tap maple trees in the spring, then evaporate the sweet sap until it became maple syrup. In Ben Franklin's time, plans were afoot to make America self-sufficient in sugar production, using maple sugar."

It kinda seems dreamy to own your own land and produce maple syrup..another dream job of mine!
Pin It Now!
