Every Spring when the temps start to warm and snow begins to melt ~ the sap begins to flow on our farm.
Typically this can begin as early as the end of February or as late as mid-March. And every season is different. Some seasons are very short. The 2018 season was quite long.
We harvest the sap from our Sugar Maples and cook it down and it then becomes one of the star ingredient in our Maple Syrup Goat Milk Soap and super-hydrating lip balm.
