Life can always use more Maple Syrup


Uncle Richard and his wife Gale O'Brien started making maple syrup as a hobby 20 years ago. Since then their hobby has grown into a full-time business. At their home in Priceville Ontario they have approximately 3,000 taps in their sugar bush. Using what is known as the "modern" method of syrup making they collect their sap using a wet/dry tubing system through the bush. They then boil the sap in an oil-fired, stainless-steel evaporator at their sugar shack. To keep the taste consistant and spring fresh, they re-heat, re-filter, and hot pack the syrup every two to three weeks.
