& JO'S SUGAR HOUSE
Maple Syrup, Grass Fed Beef, Natural Eggs and Farm Raised Produce
This family farm is producing the goods year round- Sebago Lake Ranch Grass Fed Beef, natural eggs, and produce throughout the summer. But things really get cooking when the temperature at night is below freezing and above freezing during the day- that's when the sap starts flowing at Jo's Sugarhouse and a sure fire sign that spring is just around the corner.
MAINE MAPLE SUNDAY 2020
On the fourth Sunday of each March the sweetest of Maine traditions comes alive at Jo's Sugarhouse- Maine Maple Sunday! See how sap is transformed into syrup in our hand hewn timber-frame sugar house over a crackling wood fired evaporator. Tradition at it finest, with the nostalgic smells of wood smoke and sweet maple steam.
We find ourselves in a situation we never expected to be in, but here we are. In an effort to do our best to protect the public we have decided to not serve breakfast or lunch for Maple Sunday and to not offer tours of the sugarhouse since it is a relatively small space and impossible to allow “social distancing.”
We do have lots of Maple Syrup and maple products packaged and ready to sell as well as 100% grass-fed ground beef and beef hamburger patties. This meat was packaged during the peak of the grazing season last summer and then frozen. Knowing that meat has been disappearing off of supermarket shelves, we feel it will be a service to the public to offer these hard to get items as well as Maple items for sale on Maple Sunday.
We will have someone take your order, gather the order, take payment, and then hand you the items. We ask that you try to refrain from using cash as we are set up to accept credit cards. We will get the item list posted online as soon as possible so you can think about what you would like ahead of time.
We sell Maple Syrup in all sorts of sizes and grades. It's really a labor of love for us. It must be since we out collecting sap from over 400 taps on the most frigid late winter days and we keep the sap at a rolling boil late into the nights. One taste of our syrup and you'll understand why we do it!
At Jo's Sugarhouse at Hartwell Farm you'll find all sorts of Maple Treats:Maple Fudge, Maple Sugar, Maple Lollipops, Spiced Maple Nuts, Maple Gift Baskets, Sap Collector's Buckets and so much more. Our products are available for purchase by getting in touch with us or by stopping on by.
