Living in Pancake Town

We live in the community of Burton, also known as Pancake Town USA. The town square is home to the Burton Log Cabin and several maple trees. Every March, these trees are tapped to collect sap which is delivered to the log cabin sugar house where it is boiled into pure maple syrup. Our community is known for its delicious maple syrup!

This is celebrated every March when the sap is running. Burton is host to several pancake breakfast every Sunday in March.

The polar vortex doesn't want to leave us this winter. The extremely cold weather we continue to experience isn't good for maple syrup production.

Maple syrup season marks the beginning of spring. But mother nature isn't cooperating! I hope to see warmer days in the near future.
