This goofy guy is the person who got us started making maple syrup nearly 15 years ago. He grew up in Vermont and spent his childhood and young adult years making maple syrup every spring. On his first visit to our farm, he walked through our woods, saw lots of sugar maple trees and asked “have you ever thought about making maple syrup?”
On Thursday June 4, 2015, he was tragically killed in an airplane accident in Alaska.
Our hearts are broken. We are only one of the few people he has touched throughout his lifetime. Anyone who has met Jay has a story to tell.
Jay, we love you and miss you so much.
