For New Day Farm this is a first!  The creative brewers at Union 32 Crafthouse in Minnesota are cooking up a new beer with our very own Vermont single-source Grade A Dark maple syrup. We feel like grandparents.  The new baby is going to be called New Day Mapl...

2017 sugaring season is here!  

This is a SAPCAM capture of fresh green sap flowing into our big 2600 gallon tank at the sugarhouse. It's always exciting to feel this quickening of the earth's forces, even though soon it will retreat into another frozen sleep for a few...

The season was very late this year after a long, cold winter - sap started running the last day of March.
