maple syrup!

y’all, this past sunday was, what’s known in maine as, “maple syrup sunday”!  isn’t that awesome?  a whole day dedicated to sugar!  this year was the 30th anniversary of maple syrup sunday, and over 100 sugarhouses in maine participated.  we visited a MOFGA certified organic farm called Happy Town Farm that produces maple syrup, along with organic produce, flowers and meat….
