Hidden Acres Farm, Newton NH
Featured New Hampshire Farm »

The curve of the road brings you around and to the farm. There the tractors seem artfully situated near the driveway, the light shines through the barn door, the wrap-around porch greets you, and it all says “Welcome to Hidden Acres Farm.” The house, barn, and outer buildings retain the charm of a long-ago era. If the walls could talk, there would be many tales (and tails) of daily life on the farm.

Maple Season off to an Early Start

Bruce Bascom of Bascom Maple Farms, Inc., in Alstead says the early start to this year’s sap run caught a lot of maple producers “with their buckets down.” Last Thursday (2/25) Bascom reported their own operation had already produced 15 percent of their expected crop in just two days, with only 25 percent of their taps in. He expected to have boiled a full 25 percent of expected total production by Friday (2/26) night.

“Surprisingly early” is how Bascom described this season of virtually “no winter.” He noted that working in the woods is easy this year with little to no snow on the ground—a major contrast to last year when sugarmakers had to struggle through deep snows and frigid temperatures to put in their taps.
