Wake Robin Sugar Shack [168]

3/10/10: Residents at Wake Robin, a retirement community in Shelburne, have been maintaining a Sugar Shack in the woods since 1998 when resident Ed Wheeler organized CVU students to help build the structure.

65 and older residents tap over 100 trees for sap, boil it down and strain about 26 gallons each season.

Eva gets a lesson in syrup making and has a shot (or two) of their sweet nectar.
