    He mostly likes to taste test, but hauling firewood and filtering aren't too far down the list!

    Hahaha
    Great job.
    Got to keep grooming the next generation.
    USA lost another family farm this past week. Farmer passed away a few days after they signed over the farm to a new owner. He bought it from his brothers widow in 1965ish and raised 6 kids on the farm. 2 boys and 4 girls...nobody wanted the farm. Such a sad point, there are fewer and fewer kids like the one in these pics but a growing number that want and expect everything to be given to them.

    Keep up the Good Work PloverTown!

    Getting the next generation into maple early is far better than them spending loads of time on their electronic devices hour after hour. They will be healthier and enjoy life far more and the world will be better for it too.
