Maple Weekend

On Saturday I went upstate to check out Maple Weekend. I decided on a farm that was about 2 hours away from NYC.

I stocked up on some maple syrup, some honey and a deee-licious maple cream spread. It felt great to help support a farm directly! I look forward to some more upstate NY outings this Spring and Summer. If anyone has any inside tips/ suggestions of places to visit I'd love to hear them!

Excellent photos! Looks like you all had a lot of fun!
...for some reason, I can imagine a Timmie in your handbag, passed out, from overdosing on maple syrup drenched french toast :-)
