Legend of Maple Syrup


Installing tubing and tapping with the help of our future sugar makers, Rebecca Reed and Dakota Terry.

Origin of Maple Syrup:

Legend says Maple Syrup was first discovered by a Native North American Chief who in late winter hurled his tomahawk at a tree.  The tree was a maple and when the tomahawk stuck in the tree, it created a wound, sap began to flow.  The clear liquid was collected in a container placed below.  The wife of the chief, believing the liquid was water, used it to cook venison.  After cooking, both the meat and the sweet liquid were found to have a delicious flavor.  Retracing how this occurred revealed that the sweet sap from the maple tree was the only difference.  The process was repeated, with the same "sweet" results, and the rest is history.
