They tap the maple trees in the wooded hills behind their property; over five miles of tubing and 500 trees. They don't mind if you hike back there, but the creek was too high to cross this day.

The Sugar Shack is about 1/4 mile down the road from my neighborhood. The Motz family is one of the oldest in the area. They, their kids and dogs all hang out while the syrup is cooking.

Unfortunately, the maple trees are budding again this week.. buds on the trees translates to "buddy sap" - AKA - the end of our season - before it even started. This is the 3rd season in a row that the warm weather has twarted our production. We called Al Gore and let him know that he was right - we ARE in the middle of an ice age...

We have known this all along, and have been saving the announcement to secretly drive 2015 sales...

Concentrated extracts of maple syrup combined with antibiotics significantly reduced the growth of four common bacterial strains, a study found.

The 'ole Suga' Shack sure looks cozy from the road. And hence the problem - no way to get to it from the road...

So looks like the Open House will have to be another day and time. Enjoy the snow!

Livin' the dream Clough Valley Maple Syrup...
