Highland County Maple Festival and Fair Lawn Farm

This sugar maple was planted in 1887 at Fair Lawn Farm south of Monterey. Owner Tim Duff is happy to talk about his way of sugaring that includes the old way of collecting sugar water in buckets and boiling down to make the sweet syrup.

Another of the old ways of working with sugar water.
