Maple Syrup Festival 2013

Today we headed to Auburn, KY for the annual 
Maple Syrup Festival at the Federal Grove Bed and Breakfast
We love some maple syrup around here so it was fascinating to see how it is produced.
There were buckets hanging on maple trees all around the bed and breakfast. 
Every so often you would see a drip.
 Once the sap is collected, it goes to the sugar house and gets boiled down for quite some time. It takes 35-50 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of maple syrup.
 Then all of that deliciousness is bottled up for all to enjoy...

and we definitely enjoy it!
