The 2019 Maple Syrup season started late this year but we have begun processing our Maple Syrup on the farm this week. It is turning out beautifully. As with last year we are making our syrup a higher BRIX of 68% – which is thicker and sweeter than the industry standard of 66%.
Weather has definitely NOT been our friend in the Maritimes this year!
You are probably aware that the growing season in Nova Scotia has been severely stunted due to a killing frost which hit the Maritimes on June 2nd. Due to this frost the selection of fresh produce that we, and all other local producers, will have for sale has been diminished.
Not only did we break a 30 year record for the amount of rain we received this Spring but the month of July was one of the driest! We had 3 weeks with no rain and extremely high temperatures.
We replanted after the frost and will try to have as much fresh locally grown produce as possible for your enjoyment.
Come by the Pugwash Farmers Market and sample some of our fresh home baked goods in the meantime and enjoy!
