anyone, including search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo or us, or redirect their website, thus breaking all links to them. If a link is broken

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

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
