A Highlight in Our Annual Cycle of Farm Life is Maple Sugaring

ALL ABOUT SUGAR BUSH 2014

 

For five generations members of the Yoder family have made maple syrup in the family sugar bush located in northern Allen County, Indiana near the Cedar Creek valley.

For more than two decades we joined with the Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College to provide a day-long participatory experience in maple sugaring for elementary students in the Fort Wayne area.

That program ended with Sugar Bush 2012. Going forward, we will continue to sugar on a smaller scale with the help of friends and family members, and we will continue to make pure maple syrup available to our retail customers in the Fort Wayne area.

Members of the ACRES Land Trust joined us for their annual tour and pancake breakfast at the Sugar Bush on Saturday, March 15, 2014.

We are active members of the Indiana Maple Syrup Association.
