This past Saturday, Oct 8, we held our first open house on the farm and it was quite a success. While showcasing our organic farm made maple syrup, it was a great day to mingle with residents and provide various treats from the local land. We served scrumptious mini pancakes with Doc’s Maple Syrup, hot dogs, and cheese that was made at the local cheese factory. We paired the cheese with crackers of course and offered a delicious selection of Doc’s Maple accompaniments including maple cream and maple mustard – YUM!
Our local Amish neighbors were gracious enough to provide their fresh apple cider which kept everyone hydrated while they toured our sugar shack and abundant maple trees. The 150+ people that came through seemed to enjoy the family-friendly vibe we have here at the Carpenter farm. The kids decorated our fresh pumpkins and loved the maple popsicles and maple toffee we had for dessert. All in all it was a wonderful day as we believe spending time with others while enjoying what nature has to offer certainly makes life a little sweeter!
