…"We received the DVD's thank you…. Very factual, informative, and one can almost smell the wood burning fire and maple syrup as it boils!  The children are absolutely adorable and articulate, and the quality of the production is extremely professional!  Well done, I know the DVD's are going to become a 'staple' in our school DVD collection for showing this time of year and what a wonderful legacy as well to leave to your children and the Island…. The four I've ordered thus far have been a huge hit at the two schools I purchased them for and I would love for each of our schools in H______ to be able to share the experience. It's certainly become our "go-to" video at the two schools I'm at, as basically right now we don't have a DVD on maple syrup production and there are none insofar as I know that are Canadian-made. Too, the teachers commented favourably on the family aspect of the activities and the respect shown towards one another, something we're trying to foster in the next generation." - Teacher - C. Fort, ON, Canada 

"The video of the maple syrup production was just great.  A lot of our family was here recently and we watched it together.  Great acting and nicely put together." - H. Stockburger, AB, Canada


"...Here are some shots of the evaporator.  Thanks for all the tips, you have been a great help and a great inspiration...."  - Backyard maple syrup producer, J. Osborne, NB, Canada

 "As recent graduates of the "Sap to Syrup" school of Mapleology we wanted to report our first production of 3 litres of pure maple syrup. Thank you for your video that helped us in method and in encouragement. As you can see our boiling methods are fairly rudimentary. The cinter block burner proved to be the best and we did all of the boiling on that with preheating on the wood stove and the propane burner of the Bar BQ. We had a great time yesterday and we all smelled like smoke but the sweet product was worth it. We now have 20 trees tapped and today we gathered another 50+ liters of sap since yesterday and will stockpile until our next boiling Saturday..."
