Dave Yeany will be our Maple Syrup Vendor for MapleFest on April 27th!
Dave has made 756 gallons of maple syrup to date.
(Just to give you a thought as to how much this really is, it takes approx. 86 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup!)
He will be doing quite a few very awesome things for us during the course of the day! He will have a Maple Syrup Demonstration, a Maple Cream Demo, and have his booth open all day that will have a Candy machine & he will be making sugar on snow!
