Since 1978, our 40 acres of sugar bush have enjoyed expert management by Vince, who has won a number of awards for his care and devotion to Wisconsin forestry both as a tree farmer and for his nine years of service (and two year presidency) on the board of nearby nature and heritage center Norskedalen. Each spring we collect about 1000 gallons of sap from our maple trees in old fashioned steel buckets. We turn that sap into about 25 gallons of the highest quality wood-fired maple syrup one can find. Stop at the farm in late March to watch the steam rise and smell the aroma of sweet, sweet springs. However, we'll have syrup on hand for most of the rest of the year (depending on supplies lasting!). In May we have ramps (wild onions) and wild asparagus. During the summer we have a nice supply of shiitake mushrooms and an increasing variety of tasty vegetables. In fall we have apples, pumpkins, hazelnuts, and much more.
