The longest day is here and it has me thinking. I donโ€™t know about you, but I find myself feeling slightly disconnected from our outside world, with June sitting under a heavy grey sky, we all seem to be longing for the same thing...sunshine. We obviously have a world of information at our finger tips, but imagine how we would feel if we relied on looking up and guessing, hoping, praying perhaps, that the warmth of the sun would return, dry our homes and provide us with the food we need. Iโ€™ve noticed peopleโ€™s spirits are less than chipper, with people generally feeling dissatisfied and slightly less generous to there fellow humans. I think itโ€™s important, now more than ever, to take stock of what we have, most of us have plenty if we look at whatโ€™s important. Letโ€™s try and be grateful for our food, our family and friends, and start nurturing each other more. Kindness and generosity of spirit are free. #summersolstice2019 #doasundance #thesunwillshineagain #tapintonature @littlebitsoflovely2013 #theoldcourthouse #churchstreet #axminster #thecourthousemakers

Did you know there are almost as many birch trees in Vermont as there are maple trees? ๐ŸŒณ ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Sadly, birch syrup can be expensive, and it's typically not as sweet as maple syrup - so it's unlikely to replace maple as the top dog anytime soon ๐Ÿถ Luckily for us, birch sap is incredibly versatile in drinks, so we're excited to continue to grow that market!
