It’s that time of the year again! Fresh, yummy, wholesome goodness that we call maple syrup. There is a sugarbush about 50 miles from my house and every year they have a free festival. My family and I can’t wait to go and we go every year. We each have a one track mind. My husband can’t wait to walk out to the fields and see the workers harvest. My girls can’t wait to get to the craft building. Little red and bubba can’t wait to climb the hay towers. I can’t wait to walk along the vendors, smelling the beautiful soaps and sampling the local honeys. Yes, we each have our own agenda, but we come together in the end for a yummy family tradition, the Maple Sugar Cotton Candy. I don’t know how far away that you may be, but I have pasted some information regarding this wonderful festival.
