Our family loves maple syrup! I mean, who doesn't really?! Making our own has been a topic that has been brought up on many occasions since we bought our home roughly 5 years ago, which happens to have quite a few maple trees scattered about the property. So finally it begins, today is the first day of our maple syrup production journey.
We aren't doing this alone though. We have teamed up with amazingly great friends of ours, Josh and Kristi. Josh is the expert behind the whole operation and we are thrilled to be working along side and learning from him. Josh has taught us a lot over the years from planting and harvesting our own vegetable gardens to proper care for our landscaping to helping our indoor plants thrive so there is no doubt in my mind he wont teach us everything there is to know about making maple syrup! All of us will each be doing our part throughout the entire process and working as a team. With 12 taps on our property and even more at a few other locations, we plan on producing a lot of syrup this year and we are all super excited about it!
Did you know Canada produces 80% of the world’s pure maple syrup? How cool is that?? And Canada exports this sweet goodness to approximately 50 different countries.The best part is that it is 100% pure and natural and is a great substitute for artificial or granulated sweeteners such as white sugar. Woohoo!
You may be wondering why this is on my photography blog.. Well there's no good reason really other than I took some photos today, lol! This blog will mainly be for photography related topics and client's photos but occasionally you may see a personal post such as this one pop up, I hope you don't mind :)
Until next time!
