Silloway Maple [SIV528]

4/7/18: Last year the state of Vermont led the nation in maple production, bottling 2 million gallons of the sweet nectar. Silloway Maple is a family-run farm in Randolph Center that dates back to 1942. In addition to producing about 3,000 gallons of syrup a year in their solar-powered sugar shack, they also run a dairy farm and a logging operation. This year's sugaring season is drawing to a close but you can visit this popular tourist spot year round or look for Silloway Maple at the Burlington and Montpelier Farmers' Markets.

Eva met three generations of the 22 member Silloway-Lambert family and enjoyed some maple syrup on snow.
