The Lamothe Family Farm
We started farming in 1971 with a few pigs and a vegatable garden. We began making maple syrup for our own use with a modest 7 taps, but soon had requests for purchases of our syrup. As demand became greater than our supply, we have, a number of times, expanded our number of taps and size of operation.
We have come a long way since the first 7 taps, with the help of family and close friends, expanding to more than 4000 taps in our present state-of-the-art sugar house -- with a much larger evaporator. Over the years we have added rabbits, golden retrievers.
The Sugar House
We gather sap in the spring from a modest pipe-line system which encompasses about 15 miles of plastic tubing. From there it is pumped into a tank onto our truck and is brought back to the sugar house to be boiled and processed into maple syrup.
In 2003 we converted what used to be the woodshed into a state-of-the-art packing room for bottling our maple syrup and products. In 2008 we completely renovated our country gift store adding new siding and a new roof.
