TOAD HILL HISTORY


At Toad Hill, meet Randy and Jill Galusha. Randy began making syrup when he was a young boy, about 7 years old. He had watched his grandmother make it, and wanted to try it himself. He and his brother got their dad to help (Jim, driving tractor at right). They hung a few coffee cans on the trees to catch sap. Pretty soon there were hundreds of buckets, then tubing, and they the second largest maple farm in all of Warren County. Their new sugarhouse was built in 2011 with the help of a USDA grant awarded for its energy-efficient design and equipment. Kids will be able to see their wavy reflections in the shiny steel sides of the huge evaporator,
