You may come back and cut your own or we will cut it for you and have it ready for you to pick up!  In the Spring, Maple Syrup is collected from the sugar maple. The sap is being produced in the trees during the summer by the sunlight on the chlorophyll of the leaves, which makes sugar that is stored in the tree and then dissolved by the sap in the Spring. The sap is collected from the trees very slowly. It is made up mostly of water, containing only 2% to 4% sugar. The sap is boiled in an evaporator to eliminate the water. It takes 35 to 40 gallon of sap to make one gallon of syrup. On the average, a maple tree can produce about 8 gallons of sap or approximately one quart of syrup each season.  Click here for a link to our Facebook page. (UPDATED: October 2, 2018, JBS)
    A visitor writes on October 07, 2010: "We LOVED it! and plan on attending again next year. Their corn maze is amazing! It was so much fun with our kids and neighbors. Even the adults had a great time. There were 5 games to play inside of the maze which kept the kids and adults busy. They also have an antique carousel for the kids to ride on and a small area for animals for you to look at and feed. Prices were $7 per person for the maze with ages 5 and under free. You also get a free ice cream at when you're done with maze if you do one of the games. Feeding the sheep was free unless you wanted to feed them grain which was 25 cents for a handful."
