Mountain Glen Sugarbush

This beautiful old stone sugarbush was built in 1904 and has been in continuous operation ever since. It has been updated with new reverse-osmosis equipment that removes up to 75% of the water from the sap before it goes to the boiler.
I was lucky enough to witness the old method of wood-fired boilers and sap collection using horse teams as a young child, but the new ways are far more efficient.t
