Maple Syrup Time

We tapped 5 maple trees at the hostel this weekend. I have a feeling this isn’t the first time sweet maple sap has been harvested from these old trees. We have a deep respect for this old farmhouse and acreage that was once worked on by many strong hands. Elizabeth Roper owned and worked this land for decades and even established 4H programs right here. I can only imagine the fresh hard-working energy that encompassed this place when dozens of 4H kids came to learn valuable farming skills from this wise woman. I know these old trees have seen all of this and have soaked up the nutrients from this soil. Now, years later this sacred space is a hostel and instead of generations of people living here working the land there are travelers from all over the country and world who pass through this space. They are here for a night or a few nights and maybe in and out hiking or climbing and then they are on their way, hopefully to someday return. But we are here to stay, to live here and to get this place back to its roots. It won’t be back to a full scale farm with livestock but it’s a great gift to work with what is already here.
