It was too cold for sap to run on Maine Maple Sunday, but no worries....the weather is now cooperating (warm days, cold nights) so that we have been able to make more than 200 gallons of syrup so far this season.
Since it takes 40 gallons of sap to make a gallon of syrup, that means that we have collected 8000 gallons of sap so far, with more on the way.
Spring has arrived in East Dixfield...nothing could be sweeter!
A big thank you to everyone who came to Maine Maple Sunday. We had more than 800 visitors on the farm - to enjoy pancakes and delicious Hall Farms maple syrup, to visit the new baby calves in the barn, to enjoy some ice cream in the sugarhouse, and to bring home a bag (or two!) of sweet maple cotton candy.
We would also like to thank Governor LePage for taking time to come tour the sugarhouse and schoolhouse to learn more about our dairy farm and maple syrup business. Thank you to gubernatorial candidate Eliot Cutler for coming to the farm that day as well.
We hope you will visit our Maine Maple Sunday page to see photos from the day.
Thank you for supporting our farm and helping us to celebrate our 20th Maine Maple Sunday here in East Dixfield.
Ever wonder how much sap it takes to make one gallon of maple syrup? Have you ever had maple cotton candy? Would you like to visit a Maine dairy farm that has been in the family for more than eight generations? Then head to Hall Farms on Route 2 in East Dixfield to spend Maine Maple Sunday with us on Sunday, March 23, 2014. We welcome you to enjoy our annual pancake breakfast, visit the barn to see if we have any new baby calves, take a walk up to the sap house to watch (and smell!) the maple syrup being made, and ask any of us any questions you have about the process.
If you've been to Maine Maple Sunday at Hall Farms before, we hope you'll be back. If you've never been to visit the farm, Maine Maple Sunday is a great day to stop by. We would love to see you!
We are just about a month away from the Fryeburg Fair, which begins on Sunday, September 29th. It's the last fair of the season, and it's the week when we see many of you, our loyal customers, as you come in to purchase our maple syrup for yourself and maybe for some holiday gifts, our maple sugar, maple candles, maple candies, and of course, no trip to the fair is complete without a bag (or two) of our deliciously sweet maple cotton candy. Our aunt said she can't get home without at least three bags for the ride!
We hope you will stop at the sugarhouse while you are visiting the fair, and be sure to say hello! We love to see you and we are hoping for some of this beautiful sunshine for the week we are there.
See you at the fair!
We hope you will join us this Sunday, March 24 for Maine Maple Sunday! Pancake breakfast begins at 8 a.m. at the schoolhouse. Come tour the barn (see newborn calves), the farmyard, and the sap house to watch sap being boiled into syrup. Then get your maple products (including maple cotton candy!) at the schoolhouse store! You won't want to miss it! Hope to see you at the farm!
We want to thank Spencer Roberts for all of his help creating this beautiful new Hall Farms Maple Products website. We hope you will take a few minutes to look around, and don't forget to order your delicious Maine maple syrup before you go! We hope 2013 is a wonderful year for you - and that you will stop by the farm to say hi if you are passing by.
And don't forget to mark your calendars for Sunday, March 24, and plan to join us for Maine Maple Sunday!
