Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine Maple Sunday – how sweet it is!
Portland Press Herald - 3/23/2009.
By Ann S. Kim – Maple syrup can be an addictive business. Just ask the makers and tasters who met up at Parsons Maple Products for Maine Maple Sunday. The Parsons family started making maple syrup in 1990 as a sideline to their dairy farm on Buck Street. Since then, they have set up a sugarhouse that's probably twice the size of the original and they've upgraded to larger evaporators four times.
