There is no doubt that it is spring when you see the water rise like this! First the river came up, then the sap rose in the trees, now it’s coming down from the sky. We’ve been trying to enjoy every minute of the nicer weather for collecting sap and collecting firewood for next winter.

The mother goats now all have their kids for this year. That means cute little babies for all of us to enjoy and lots of good milk for us to drink. It seems each one of our female goats can supply more than enough milk for twins and for our family.

This week, we will boil off the sap we’ve collected and try to wait out the wet weather. You are welcome to join us this summer for a tour, just call to set up a suitable date.
