    It will be worth the trip. Theres a lot to see and do and seemingly not enough time to do it! You'll be running around there like a kid in a candy store! And then towards the end of the day, you'll be in a corner somewhere sobbing because you'll want to take it all home, but can't fit it all into the car. Lol!

    Seriously, there is a lot to take in. Actually, its overwhelming for a small producer attending for the first time. I know after I looked around the first time I thought, "I don't know if I'll ever need whats on display here!". Now after many years of attending, and producing, guess what? And I see in your signature it says "Dreaming Big!". Get a good nights sleep before the show!

    We will be going, Hungry Bear Farms. We will have a table in the vendor area. We sale beekeeping equipment. I know its a maple show, but last time I went there was alot of interest in beekeeping by maple producers. So we figured we would give it a try.

    If you want us to bring your order and save on shipping let me know.

    See you there. We are staying at Verona Downs.

    That's the closest. From Turning Stone, turn left on Patrick, left on Snyder and left on Beacon Light. The school is on your rt. About 2 miles or less. See you there.
    Dave Klish about 400 taps, down from much more. Retired from collecting and boiling in 2021. Mostly because of a bad hip.
