Late February and March brings us into the woods to tap those maple trees. We gather the sweet sap on a warm day following a freezing cold night, and finally boil it until the water has evaporated, leaving the delightful syrup for us to savor. How much maple syrup is made each year is totally dependent on the weather. We love to have you watch so look for the steam from our sugarhouse at the 8765 Mulberry Road Farm.
When remembering friends and family, consider sending them the natural gift of Geauga County – pure maple syrup, which can be purchased in our Farm Market on Caves Road, or right here at our Online Store!
2013 Maple Syrup Update: The record breaking 2013 Maple Syrup season started in early March and was long and steady thanks to the cold temperatures. We boiled over 9 times during season and finished up April 8th. The taps are pulled and the boiling is done, but we will have plenty of delicious Patterson's maple syrup available in our market all year!
2012 Maple Syrup: We tapped February 19th and made over 100 gallons before the end of February. We had just over 1,000 taps last year and it was our best start in over 20 years. However, because the warm temperatures came early and hung around, our 2012 maple syrup season was cut short.
