We farm 5 open acres and 3 hugh-tunnels in South Albany and West Glover, Vermont. We are fortunate to have fertile soil and a supportive agricultural community. Between cover crops, soil amendments, and the annual spreading of compost and animal manure we aim to not only maintain, but improve, the quality of our soil. We sell our produce and wood-fired maple syrup throughout Northern Vermont. Click here to find a retail or farm stand location close to home.
We lease our sugarhouse from our neighbors, the Whitcomb family. In 2011, after our first year sugaring, we converted the Whitcomb's 3 ½’ x 10’ evaporator from oil to wood by building a brick arch under the front pan. For 8 seasons, our sugarbush has been a birdshot of neighbors’ retired maple stands and roadside giants. We lease 600 maples between Mel and Gavin’s place and Dale’s Pond, 100 or so that weave through South Albany’s original cellar holes, 80 along the Urie’s sheep fields that stretch toward Craftsbury, a few in front of our house, and a few more in Earl’s ditch. 1,200 buckets in all. Over the years, we’ve expanded—asking more and more neighbors, or the same neighbors for more—and the answer has always been “yes” and the exchange has always been a few gallons of syrup at the end of the season.
